Egypt seemed to be one of the main candidates to win this Africa Cup of Nations, not only because many of the players in their squad play in Europe, but also because they have one of the best strikers today: Mohamed Salah. However, in the group stage they did not show too many virtues. Still, the elimination of some of the candidates (such as Nigeria and Algeria) give them a good chance of going for the title.
On the other side will be the Ivory Coast, a team that could also be counted as one of the main candidates, and even more so after the elimination of Nigeria and Algeria. They won the group stage very solidly, beating Equatorial Guinea and Algeria themselves (a game that cost the Algerians elimination) and drawing with Sierra Leone.
