Africa Cup of Nations: Standings

Note: While this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations is officially referred as Afcon 2021, due to the tournament’s postponement, for continuity, we might sometimes refer to it as Afcon 2022.

Africa?s 24 top football nations finally get the chance to be crowned kings of the continent, as the delayed 2021 Africa Cup of nations plays out in Cameroon throughout January and February.

Six groups of four countries contest the pool phase, with the top two sides in each group plus the four best third-placed finishers going into the Round of 16.

Then it?s the quarter-finals and the semis before the final on 6 February at the Olembe Stadium in capital city Yaounde.

Below you can find standings for all the group stages of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.

Host nation Cameroon kick off Group A as favourites, as they seek to reclaim the Afcon title they won in 2017, although they will expect to be pushed by Burkina Faso, who they meet in the opening fixture.

Cape Verde and Ethiopia make up the other half of the pool, with their mission to upset the Fifa rankings and seal a knockout place.

Five-time Champions Cameroon enter the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations as the hosts with coach Antonio Conceicao looking to make that six.

He has been in charge of the In since September 2019. He has overseen 16 matches, winning nine and losing twice (to Ivory Coast and Cape Verde) while drawing the other five.

Under his tutelage, Cameroon have slowly been rebuilding. They are by no means a flashy side, but they are efficient But the pressure of being the host nation at the Africa Cup of Nations could very well cost him his job.
