    African Cup Of Nations

    The 2019 African Cup of Nations has been nothing short of both exciting and unexpected as all the 2017 tournament’s semi-finalists have already been knocked out, but all going down fighting hard. New & unexpected faces are in the semi-finals this year, with only a handful of the favourites remaining, but it is the 108th ranked minnows of Madagascar who have raised the most eyebrows.

    With tight results in drawing and beating Burundi and Guinea respectively, and a shock upset penalty shoot-out victory over DR Congo, the islanders find themselves in the quarter finals against Tunisia in the quarter finals. Regardless of the result with Tunisia being the favourites, Madagascar has earned respect around the continent for their spirit shown under French manager Nicolas Dupuis and veteran captain Faneva Imà Andriatsima of Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot 63
