Mahrez and Sadio Mane playing each other on the African player of the year in the final. I like this, serves Salah right I guess, and yeah I'm the one saying this.

Well deserved. Nigeria was kept out of it for the whole game.

A rematch between Senegal and Algeria in the final.

Second game in a row where algeria lets their opponents back into the game then go into feck you mode and proceed to carve them up at will. Last time the last gasp fk went inches off the post :lol:

Algeria should be strong favourites for the final. Mane and Senegal haven’t been outstanding at all so far and would need to lift their game up a notch or two in order to trouble this Algeria. We should also get a much better crowd and a cracking atmosphere for the finals, with the Algerian fans. I predict Algeria to win their second trophy and Senegal to continue their long wait for a first trophy.

Quality has been great for the most part. My only complaint is the amount of empty seats, not a good look for CAF
True though the fact that the host country had to be changed and the obvious travel and economic issues on the continent should be taken into account. CAF probably should have given away tickets for the semis to fill up the stadiums.

If you're talking about Salah then he's had a very sub par season. Not surprised he's carried that into the AFCON. Him and Mane need a holiday until October. :(

Hopefully Ox remains injury free this season and Brewster saves us a billion. :D

He's talking about Mane. Who's having a good tournament actually, 'cept for all the missed penalties :lol:

On a related note, who do you guys think has been the player of the tournament so far?

Talking about Mane yeah. He's usually way better than what he's delivering in this AFCON. For me he has been subpar and he is lucky to be in the Final.

As a top team, I'm a bit disappointed to be watching us play a third place match. Exact same feeling I had when Champions League football was out of reach for United.

Tunisia have to be the most underwhelming semi finalist ever. Won only one of their 6 matches and losing the 7th now.

Embarrassed to say this is our first game I am watching. Impressed with what I have seen so far.
