Africa Cup of Nations Fixtures, Results & Tables – Football

There are 16 nations left to battle it out for the crown of best team in Africa at the 2022 Africa Nations Cup, and the knockout stages begin with the Round of 16. The complete schedule for the tournament follows below.

Defending champion Algeria, which also added the FIFA Arab Cup to its trophy case in December, is out after suffering elimination in the group stage. But the other 2019 finalist, Senegal, remains in the hunt for its first-ever AFCON championship.

Egypt has won the tournament more often than any other nation (seven), but it hasn’t hoisted the trophy since 2010. Fans of the Pharaohs will hope Liverpool superstar forward Mohamed Salah can carry the team far in the knockouts. Ivory Coast has a deep and experienced squad, while host Cameroon is into the quarterfinals and will like its chances of pulling off a surprise and replicating its 2017 title run.

AFCON 2022: Tournament format

Similar to other continental championships and World Cup tournaments, the Africa Cup of Nations began with a group stage, followed by knockout rounds all the way to the final. And for the first time in the competition’s history, all 52 matches are featuring video review and the use of a Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Group stage: The 24 nations were divided into six groups of four nations each. At the conclusion of round-robin group play — with three points awarded for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss — the top two teams in each group based on points (and tiebreakers, if necessary) advanced to the knockouts. The remaining slots in the Round of 16 were filled out by the four best third-place finishers.

Knockout stage: A predetermined knockout bracket will be played out all the way through to the final. If any knockout match ends in a tie after 90 minutes, the teams will play 30 minutes of extra time. If the draw persists, a penalty-kick shootout will determine the team to move on. The third-place match is the only one that would skip extra time and move straight to the shootout in case of a draw.
