The African Cup of Nations Qualifiers have been making the round in this international break as we are witnessing at the moment.
And on this note, we had a couple of interesting feats to look upon amid matters arising on the pitch.
While teams made waves for themselves on the African continent during some of these fixtures.
Here, Isagoal.com reveals some of the things we’ve learned in the African Qualifying series.
Some top sides are struggling
The likes of Nigeria and Cameroon may have a renowned pedigree from the African football perspective.
But the way Guinea-Bissau and Namibia are posing a threat to what these top sides represent is a cause for worry for both sides.
Nigeria managed to earn three points after losing the first leg in Abuja to Guinea-Bissau. While Cameroon couldn’t even secure a win in either of the two-legged fixtures against Namibia. They lost 2-1 and drew 1-1 at home in Cameroon.
Algeria Are Early Birds To AFCONThe Algerian side became the first African side to qualify for the AFCON showpiece in Ivory Coast as they overcame Niger Republic 0-1 in Niamey.
Now Riyad Mahrez’s led side has to start planning ahead of next year’s tournament as they confirmed their place with a 2-1 win over Niger Republic in the first leg.
African Minnows Are ImprovingIn African football, the supposed lowly rated teams are beginning to measure up with the top sides as we can see at the moment.
Smaller teams like Uganda, Madagascar, Namibia and Guinea-Bissau have greatly improved in essence.
While the likes of Cape Verde, CAR and Comoros Island are becoming even hard to beat on the African football scene.
