The 2008 Africa Cup of Nations has just started!

Well, here are the current group standings:

2. Ghana 3 pts
3. Guinea 0 pts
4. Namibia 0 pts
------------------------------------------


Latest results:

Ghana 2-1 Guinea
Namibia 1-5 Morocco


Men to watch:

Ghana’s Michael Essien (Chelsea) and Sulley Muntari (Portsmouth);


And Morocco’s promising young talent who scored a hat-trick against Namibia, Soufiane Alloudi.


Alloudi (Right)

My prediction:

Ghana will top the table, followed by Morocco.

2. Mali 3 pts
3. Benin 0 pts
4. Nigeria 0 pts
------------------------------------------


Latest results:

Nigeria 0-1 Ivory Coast

1-0 Benin


Men to watch:

Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou (Both Celsea). Man, Chelsea is good at producing talented African players!

Nigeria’s Jon Obi Mikel (Chelsea, again) and Obafemi Martins (Newcastle United).


My prediction:

Ivory Coast will go number 1 and number 2 will be filled in by Nigeria.


---------------------------------
GROUP C

1. Zambia 3 pts
2. Egypt 3 pts
3. Cameroon 0 pts
4. Sudan 0 pts
---------------------------------

Latest results:

Egypt 4-2 Cameroon
Sudan 0-3 Zambia

Men to watch:

Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o, who now plays for Spanish giants, Barcelona;


Egyptian Mohamed Zidan (Hamburg SV)! He scored a brace against Cameroon!!o.O



My prediction:

I think Egypt will fill the top spot while Cameroon goes second.

---------------------------------
GROUP D

1. Angola 0 pts
2. Senegal 0 pts
3. South Africa 0 pts
4. Tunisia 0 pts
---------------------------------

No latest results yet.

Men to watch:

El-Hadj Diouf (Bolton) who plays for Senegal;

A promising youngster who plays for Everton in the BPL, Steven Pienaar (South Africa);

And Angolan Manucho Goncalves (Manchester United), a future potential. He has yet to display his gaming style. Fergie describe him as tall, agile and a quick forward.

Sorry, I can’t find his picture.

My prediction:

South Africa will go top while Senegal will move into the second spot.


KNOCKOUT STAGE

Quarter Finals:

Group A winner vs Group B runner-up

My next prediction goes like this:


Ghana 3-1 Nigeria

South Africa 1-2 Cameroon

Egypt 0-1 Senegal

Let’s proceed to the semi-finals. These are my next predictions xp:


Ghana 1-0 Cameroon
