Reports: CAF strips Cameroon right to host 2019 AFCON tournament +++ Niger involves migrants in fight against HIV/AIDS +++ Experts seek ways to re-fertilize Africa's degraded soil
After Mauritania and Angola played out the first goalless draw of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon and Ghana, as well as Benin and Guinea Bissau followed suit. Groups E and F are both wide open as a result.
Five time champions and current title holders Cameroon got their 2019 tournament off to a winning start. Ghana were held by a spirited Benin side who got a draw thanks to a striker who used to play in Germany.
In March 2019, German-born Cebio Soukou won his first cap for Benin. Now he's about to represent his father's homeland at the Africa Cup of Nations, where he's expecting an exciting tournament – and the title.
From leaving the pitch in tears to being touted as a Ballon d'Or contender, the turn of the year did wonders for Sadio Mane. With Senegal chasing a first AFCON title, 2019 isn't over yet though.
