While stars such as Riyad Mahrez, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Khama Billiat could not help their teams advance beyond the AFCON group stages, other players have stepped up. But which 11 Africans would you vote into your Team of the Month?
On Saturday, 28 January, the quarter-finals took centre stage – Burkina Faso secured a 2-0 win over Tunisia courtesy of goals from Aristide Bance and Prejuce Nakoulma, while the encounter between Senegal and Cameroon went down to the wire as a penalty shootout determined the result. Sadio Mane's missed spot-kick sent the Indomitable Lions into the semi-finals.
On Sunday, 29 January, Congo DR faced off against Ghana, and the Black Stars secured their sixth consecutive semi-final after goals from Jordan and Andre Ayew, with DRC hitting a consolation strike through Paul-Jose M'Poku.
In the fourth and final quarter-final, Mahmoud Kahraba sent Egypt through to the semi-finals with a late goal to beat a strong Moroccan side.
