Group D

Text by Allaoua MEZIANI

Latest update : 2010-01-10

Cameroon and Gabon meet again after their tussle in the qualifiers, while Tunisia must make amends for their failure to book a place at the World Cup.

Group D: Cameroon, Gabon, Tunisia, Zambia

After a miserable campaign to qualify for the World Cup, Tunisia will be keen to earn their stripes again as they face off against competitors in the Africa Cup of Nations. Alongside Cameroon, Tunisia’s Eagles of Carthage are the favourites to qualify from group D.

But their task will be far from easy. Gabon will be itching to avenge their defeat to Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions in the World Cup qualifiers, while Zambia will be counting on its fans to cross the border en masse and support the Chipolopolos in neighbouring Angola.
 

The favourites: Tunisia, Cameroon.

The nicknames: The Indomitable Lions (Cameroon), the Panthers (Gabon), the Chipolopolos or Copper Bullets (Zambia) and the Eagles of Carthage (Tunisia).

The matches (all times are GMT):

Wednesday, Jan. 13: Cameroon - Gabon (4pm) and Tunisia - Zambia (6:30pm)

Sunday, Jan. 17: Gabon - Tunisia (4pm) and Cameroon - Zambia (6:30pm)

Thursday, Jan. 21: Cameroon - Tunisia (4pm) and Gabon - Zambia (4pm, in Benguela)
