Football Official: AFCON 2023

Desert Warriors my pick this time Clive. Really fancy the Algerians to repeat their 2019 triumph.

Big KO is Saturday night with hosts Ivory Coast fronting up to Guinea- Bissau.

Reds Andre Onana and Sofyan Amrabat in action on Monday and Wednesday respectively in the coming week.

Actually scored 54 out of 54 African flags in the FlagsoftheWorld app the other day. Makes you think.*

Some real crackers in that part of the world. Possibly/probably the best continent for flags.

This weekend's fixtures

SATURDAY 13TH JANUARY
GROUP A
20:00** - Ivory Coast Vs Guinea-Bissau

SUNDAY 14TH JANUARY
GROUP A
14:00 - Nigeria Vs Equatorial Guinea

GROUP B
17:00 - Egypt Vs Mozambique
20:00 - Ghana Vs Cape Verde

*props to Mozambique boys who managed to get a Kalishnikov rifle on to theirs. We can see that bad boy raised on Sunday as they take on Egypt.

**all times are UK times and are subject to change.
