AFCON 2022 quiz: How much do you know about Africa's premier competition?


The 2022 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations kicked off this weekend as Cameroon took on Burkina Faso.

The continental carnival will play host to some of the finest footballing talent on the planet over the coming weeks as Africa’s best battle it out for the prestigious international prize.

The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – to name but a few – have all headed home to pull on the colours of their homelands.

While AFCON often doesn’t receive the respect it deserves, there can be no questioning the fact that it is one of the most historic tournaments in the world.

From Algeria to Zimbabwe, AFCON provides some of the most talented footballers around the stage to showcase their talents in front of the watching world.

With names such as George Weah, Yaya Toure, Michael Essien, Nwankwo Kanu and so many more littered throughout the pages of AFCON history, is there anyone at the 2022 tournament who can etch their name into the record books?
