Read < 1 minute

All 24 slots for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations have been filled after Cameroon and Namibia qualified on Tuesday night.

The five-time African Champions, Cameroon, beat Burundi 3-0 on the last match day of the AFCON qualifiers to seal their spot, also ensuring Namibia qualify as runners up.

The two teams from Group C played only four games in their qualification journeys after Kenya was slapped with a FIFA ban, rendering the Harambee Stars ineligible to participate.

The Indomitable Lions and the Southern African country’s Brave Warriors join an impressive list of teams that will battle it out for honors in the continental tournament that will be staged in Côte d’Ivoire in January-February 2024.

Cameroon will be looking forward to playing in Côte d’Ivoire, having won the competition the last time the West African country hosted the event in 1984.

Coach Rigobert Song and his side will be tasked with hunting down an elusive sixth AFCON title, having failed to deliver on home soil in the last edition held in 2022.

Other countries that have qualified for AFCON 2023 are; Côte d’Ivoire, Algeria, Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, DR Congo, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia and Zambia.
