Official: Teams Already Knocked Out Of AFCON

Following Ghana’s shock elimination from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday night, here are all the teams that have so far been knocked out of the tournament in Cameroon.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the sides that have headed home from AFCON.

The Black Stars were dumped out of the competition after suffering a 3-2 defeat to Comoros in Group C, with Andre Ayew’s sending-off in the first half making life incredibly difficult for Milovan Rajevac’s men.

Ghana went into the tournament confident after making it to the final round of qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup with a controversial win over Bafana Bafana, but failed to win a single game in Cameroon, losing twice and drawing once.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Rajevac insisted he would not resign from his position and that he believes Ghana will be in good enough shape to qualify for the World Cup later this year.

Zimbabwe, another one of South Africa’s recent opponents, have also not done enough to make it to the knock-out stages of the Africa Cup of Nations, despite their spirited 2-1 win over Guinea on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Ethiopia’s fate was confirmed on Monday already, after their 1-1 draw with Burkina Faso in Group A saw them go home with only one point on the board.
