South Sudan's growing bastion of Australian-based players

The world's newest sovereign state, South Sudan, will begin its long road to qualify for the 2021 African Cup of Nations on Oct. 7 with a match against the Seychelles. Remarkably, 12 of the 32-man squad will be making the journey of more than 7,000 miles from Australia to join coach Ashu Cyprian Besong and the rest of the national team in Khartoum to prepare for the two-legged preliminary round tie.

It was a fitting tribute to the genius of the left-footed wing necromancer who had not only emerged from nowhere to score two goals as Nigeria won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1994, but also had been instrumental to their enchanting World Cup play in the U.S. a few months...

Afcon qualifying: Lesser lights take centre stage on final weekend

When the Confederation of African Football ratified an expansion to the Africa Cup of Nations in July 2017, introducing eight more teams to the biennial competition, the dynamic of the qualifying program was always going to change.

As had been the case ahead of the European Championship in 2016, for which UEFA had instigated an increase from 16 to 24 teams, many of the continent's heavyweights cruised to the tournament with games to spare.
