We’re down to just four teams remaining in the 2019 African Cup of Nations with a series of semi-final matches now on the menu to see who advances to next Friday’s final. Regardless of where you are on the planet, our guide below for getting an African Cup of Nations 2019 live stream will ensure you don’t miss a kick.
First held in 1957 with just three countries taking part, the 32nd biannual African Cup of Nations will see 24 sides go for glory this year. Notable for the often end-to-end attacking styles of its participating teams, there’s rarely a dull match during AFCON.
Possibly the biggest shock so far came in the round of 16 Mohamed Salah and hosts Egypt were knocked out of the competition by South Africa. At least Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane’s Senegal have made it through unscathed. Senegal have never won the AFCON but are one of the favourites this year, with many tipsters expecting a side that feature’s Mane and Napoli’s towering centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly to do well.
Elsewhere, Nigeria are also are good bet to go far in this year’s tournament. Minnows of Madagascar – possibly the story of the tournament – are finally out, but previous winners Algeria and Tunisia make up the semi-final quartet.
Cameroon came to Egypt as the reigning champions but lost 3-2 to Nigeria in a round of 16 thriller. As well as shifting to the summer, this year’s tournament is a much longer competition having been expanded to host 24 teams for the first time. Its a change which may play a factor for some of the star players on show who will have had lengthy seasons in Europe.
