    1. Worst afcon ever.

    2. mali semi final

    3. This predictions are all nonsense

    4. Confuses me why anyone would prefer club football over national football unless they're being marginalized or feel an extremely small connection to their homeland.



    7. Love all other African countries, but Nigeria for the trophy ๐Ÿ†.. 4th title coming home

    8. Sร‰Nร‰GAL ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ณ have the strongest Team they will win it ๐Ÿ†

    9. We might not be in our best shape like before! But we know how to win this competition. ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿคฒ๐Ÿป

    10. No mahrez really x)))

    11. I'll have to say Egypt and Algeria will reach far

    12. Worst preview I've ever seen

    13. Gambia shall lift the trophy ๐Ÿ†

    14. Egypt is has no Afrcan Espirit at all eventhough physicaly represent Africa. More Agypt should compute with Arab countries.

    15. Nigeria to win

    16. Algeria will get the cup again

    17. I'm a proud Ghanaian and we have a good team with the likes of Partey, Ayew, Wakaso, and Kamaldeen but the team currently lacks the chemistry and team spirit therefore doubt them winning. Although anything could happen, I wish to see teams like The Gambia and Comoros reach far and even win

    18. Let the games begin

    19. lets go MALAWI

    20. In the last 10 editions (except for 2015), the favourites didnt win, so I will say Ivory Coast will make it

    21. I think Ghana and Gambia will surprise people. But Senegal have the strongest team!

    22. According to me Ethiopia will be very very successful team this time round. We expect more for our African nations to do their best .long live Africa

    23. I am a Nigerian. But, for now Senegal ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ณ has the best team in Africa for now. For me, Senegal is going to lift the trophy this time.

    24. Despite a civil War going on, this Gig will go on as scheduled. Once again Football the beautiful game stops the Continent of Africa, May the best team win, I am seeing Senegal winning their first one.

    25. ๐Ÿฆ… ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ†

    26. Black Stars ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ

    27. Gambia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ฒ

    28. Cameroon will be in the finals i bet you it will be very difficult for that cup to leave Cameroon

    29. โค๏ธ Fi Galsen mo fi nekk โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ณ

    30. Go for Mauritania & Mali !

    31. All love to Morocco ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    32. I think Senegal might win this tournament if not then Cameroon. Algeria is doing great but I think it will be hard for us to win it again especially when you're the number one favourite to win the title! I hope this Afcon exceeds expectations <3

    33. Nigeria will silent mo salah With our squad…watch out

    34. Good luck to everyone and every Africain from Algeria๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฟ

    35. Nigeria is winning.

    39. Favourites Usually don't win the Afcon. But Algeria has a pretty good chance of doing it.

    40. My mama Ethiopia forever, The Walias!!! Africa Unite!!!

    41. @lisa anderson yes but many of the hollywood AFRICAN AMERICAN celebrities dont look black they look light skin & mixed race.ebony mag says they use this lotion which makes them look far more light skin & mixed race and not black anymore.
