2012 Africa Cup of Nations: Winners and Losers [ Preview ]

There may be no Pharaohs, Super Eagles or Indomitable Lions at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, but some Elephants, Nile Crocodiles and several underdogs will be there. FRANCE 24 takes a look at what this year’s event means in both Africa and beyond.

Sixteen teams will take part in this year’s three-week-long Africa Cup of Nations, which is co-hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. The football kicks off on Saturday when Equatorial Guinea take on Libya in the country’s capital Bata. 

The final will take place three weeks later on February 20 in Libreville, the capital of neighbouring Gabon. The tournament is set to see plenty of winners and losers but not just on the pitches in Africa.
