AFCON 2019: Key facts about Africa's biggest football tournament
With 24 teams participating, this is the largest AFCON yet and also the first to be played during Europe's summer.
The 32nd edition of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is underway in Egypt.
In total 24 teams are participating in the tournament for the first time in history, making it the biggest yet, and the first to be played during Europe's summer after the Confederation of African Football moved it from its traditional January/February slot.
The change means the tournament is no longer competing for viewers or players with the Premier League whose season ended in May.
The new time frame also means top players from Europe are available for their national teams.
Group A: Egypt, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Zimbabwe
Group B: Nigeria, Guinea, Madagascar, Burundi
Group C: Senegal, Algeria, Kenya, Tanzania
Group D: Morocco, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Namibia
