Group Stage Matches 2015 Africa Cup of Nations

The Africa Cup of Nations was frequently in the news due to the last minute host change. Morocco refused to host the Africa Cup of Nations out of fears concerning the Ebola virus. Equatorial Guinea took over hosting duties, and as result the national team was allowed to participate. The Moroccan national team was disqualified as punishment decided by CAF. The interesting fact is, the Equatorial Guinea team didn’t succeed in qualifying for the tournament originally. They only participated in the tournament as a result of becoming the new hosts. Equatorial Guinea had a susccesful Africa Cup of Nations, but as expected, it was Ivory Coast that won the tournament for the first time since 1992.

A controversial happening in this tournament is the draw of lots between group D teams Mali and Guinea. Both had the same amount of points and goal difference, so lots had to be drawn. Guinea won and advanced to the quarter-finals. Mali was eliminated. But CAF, please, next time make the teams sort this out on the field with a penalty shootout for example! The draw is just unfair since it focuses purely on a coincidental outcome.
