More: The winner earns the African berth to the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia, in addition to the title of best African team through the next cycle's championship in 2019.
Fun Fact: Egypt is the most successful Cup team in history, with seven total titles, but along with defending champion Nigeria from 2013, failed to qualify for these finals. Ghana and Cameroon each have four. Meanwhile, want an example of the dysfunction at times in sport organization on the continent? Morocco was the scheduled host since January '11 until they pulled out in November '14 out of ebola fears, and their national team was summarily disqualified as well. When Equatorial Guinea stepped up to host, they were granted the host nation' slot to participate, despite having been properly disqualified themselves in the early qualification stages for an ineligible player. Fun start to the tournament!
