Key Highlights

Mali, who are making their 13th AFCON appearance, will look to pose a threat in this year’s tournament as they have underachieved since they finished as runner-up in 1972.

The Eagles have 26 out of their 27-man-squad based in Europe; the focus for coach Eric Chelle will be that his charges will draw on their experiences in Europe to pose a robust threat to South Africa and their opponents at AFCON as they bid to challenge.

South Africa is at the opposite end of the spectrum to Mali. 24 out of their 27-man squad are based locally. Coach Hugo Broos will hope that he can fashion a united squad and team to go deeper into the tournament, starting with beating Mali on Tuesday.

Hugo Boos, who won the AFCON tournament with Cameroon in 2017, will hope to give his side the confidence, tactical edge, and street smarts needed to emerge victorious at the tournament this year.
