As we look forward to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, seven nations have already qualified for the group stage of the tournament, scheduled to take place in January 2024.
Hosts Ivory Coast secured automatic qualification, while the other six teams earned their spots through the ongoing qualifiers.
Morocco was among the first teams to qualify, topping Group K with six points after wins over South Africa and Liberia. Zimbabwe, the fourth team in the group, were disqualified due to a FIFA ban on their football federation.
Reigning champions Senegal also secured qualification with four wins out of four games in Group L. Bafana Bafana joined them after beating Liberia 2-1, while Burkina Faso, Algeria, and Tunisia also booked their places.
There are still 17 spots up for grabs in the next round of qualifiers in June and September.
