With the African Cup of Nations set to commence on the 17th of January in Equatorial Guinea, the 16 participating nations have announced their 23-man squads ahead of the tournament. Here's an a look at each squad, and the players that have been selected to represent their countries at this year's tournament:
The Special One has returned and requested the services of his young striker who could potentially become a Chelsea legend. Providing Chelsea don’t go out and spend £50 million a new a striker this transfer window then there is no reason why Romelu Lukaku cannot cement a place in Chelsea’s starting eleven and lead the line for Belgium at the World Cup in Brazil next year.
Chelsea thrashed Tottenham 5-1 in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley to meet Liverpool in the final. However it was a game steeped in controversy as Chelsea’s second goal, a turning point in the game, clearly didn’t cross the line.
The Blues managed to secure three points after a piece magnificent skill by Didier Drogba. However Chelsea were far from their best and should have scored more. Stoke played 65 minutes of the match with 10 men after Ricardo Fuller was sent off for stamping on Branislav Ivanović.
