AFCON 2023 Reaches Quarter-Final Stages

After a week of thrills and drama that saw hosts Cote d’Ivoire stage one of the biggest comebacks in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), the stage is now set for the quarter-final phase of the competition.

The quarter-finals will be played between Friday, February 2nd – 3rd, 2024. All the eight remaining countries that will contest the quarter-finals have been confirmed, with South Africa booking the last spot after eliminating FIFA World Cup semi-finalists, Morocco in a drama-filled match in San Pedro.

The 34th edition of Africa’s biggest football spectacle has been nothing short of exceptional, thanks to the quality of football, unexpected twists and turns and of course the passionate supporters of the African game that have come out in their large and colourful numbers across the five host cities in Cote d’Ivoire.

Three-time champions, Nigeria face Angola in the first quarter-final fixture on Friday, 02 February at 17h00 before the Democratic Republic of Congo, who are in search of its third AFCON title, face a resilient Guinea in the late evening Kick off at 20h00.

On Saturday, hosts Cote d’Ivoire, still breaming with confidence, will come against a formidable Mali side who have been dominant in the competition. Then Cape Verde, one of the sensations in this tournament, take on South Africa.
