All the teams set to take part in the finals of the TotalEnergies African Nations Championship (CHAN) 2022 have been unveiled.

Let’s take a glance at each zone:

NORTH ZONE: Algeria, Morocco, Libya

In addition to Algeria being qualified as hosts of the tournament, Morocco and Libya will take part in the CHAN as UNAF representatives. Both the Atlas Lions and the Mediterranean Knights participated in the 2020 edition held in Cameroon and Morocco were crowned champions.

WEST A ZONE: Senegal, Mali, Mauritania

By beating (PSO 5-3) Guinea who was considered their “bête noire” after having deprived them of 2016, 2018 and 2020 finals, Senegal return to the CHAN 11 years later. During the first leg of the last qualifying round, Pape Thiaw’s colts had won narrowly 1-0. The same score was recorded in the return leg, this time in favour of Guinea, and Senegal had to wait for the fateful penalty shootout to qualify.

Mali and Mauritania will be part of the Algerian party thanks to clear victories in the second round of the qualifiers. Reigning runners-up Mali overcame Sierra Leone 2-1 and 2-0 (in the return leg: goals by Samabali 35′ and Sinayoko 59′); while Mauritania dominated Guinea-Bissau 2-0 on aggregate after narrow 1-0 victories in both legs.

WEST B ZONE: Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, Ghana

Côte d’Ivoire, Niger and Ghana each secured a slot in the final tournament in Algeria. In the highly anticipated derby, Ghana and Nigeria played to a draw (2-0, 0-2) and had to go to a penalty shootout 5-4 in favour of the Black Galaxies.
There was also a close encounter between Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso. The two teams could only manage to draw and go home empty-handed. It was the penalty shoot-out that decided the match. 5-3 in favour of Côte d’Ivoire.

Things were easier for Niger who lost 1-0 in the first leg against Togo before winning at home 3-1 thanks to goals from Boubacar Soumana, Adamou Garba and Moussa Issa. The Togolese goal was scored by Bilali Akoro in the 48th minute.

CENTRAL ZONE: Cameroon, Congo, DR Congo

Forced to play their first leg away from home, CAR won 2-1 in Brazzaville before losing 1-0 in the return leg. Congo took advantage of the away goal to qualify.
A week ago in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea beat Cameroon 1-0 but could not hold on to that score. In the return match on Sunday in Garoua, Equatorial Guinea fell to Cameroon 2-0 with goals from Kaiba Djawal (43′) and Souaibou (46′).

At the Martyrs Stadium complex in Kinshasa on Sunday, the Democratic Republic of Congo thrashed Chad 5-0. In the first leg, DRC had already dominated their opponent with a score of 2-1.
