Schedule of round of 16 matches in the 2023 African Cup of Nations and dates

The curtain came down on the group stage of one of the most exciting African Cup of Nations competitions, which carried many surprises and shocks at the same time, especially for Arab fans.

Algeria and Tunisia exited the competition in the group stage in an unexpected way, while Mauritania was the dark horse by reaching the round of 16 after the first victory in its history in “Alkan” against the Desert Warriors.

Egypt qualified hard-fought with three draws, and thanks to a valuable gift from the Mozambique national team, which tied with the Ghana national team in the final meters.

Morocco did not find it difficult to pass, but its coach, Walid Regragui, was suspended after a quarrel with Congolese players in the second group stage match.

In addition to Tunisia and Algeria, Ghana bid farewell to the competition full of surprises, represented by Equatorial Guinea, by topping a group that included Nigeria and host Côte d’Ivoire, as well as Cape Verde, which almost eliminated Egypt and actually eliminated Ghana.

Perhaps fate was kind to the hosts, as despite the 4-0 defeat by Equatorial Guinea, occupying third place with 3 points and a goal difference of -4, and a weak chance of qualifying, Ghana (two points) and Zambia (two points) granted qualification to the hosts in an unexpected way. .

The round of 16 matches will be very exciting, and there are two summits in particular that are of interest to everyone.

The talk here is about the host, Côte d’Ivoire, which fired its coach after a 4-0 loss, and which will meet Senegal, the defending champion and the strongest team in the competition so far.

The other summit is the classic summit between Nigeria and Cameroon.
