Angolan Supporters Angolan football supporters and the Palancas Negras (The Black Antelopes) have succeeded in the placing the name of Angola on the football map since 1982. Since their apperance in the World Cup (Germany 2006) Angola is gradually emerging as a promising side.
Nigerian Football Team Football fans will not forget nostalic memories of Nigeria's glorious days when the Eagles boasted of the mesmorising talent of Austin Jayjay Okocha and the defence barrier provided by Sunday Oliseh Rashidi Yekini as the scoring machine upfront.
Egyptian Football Team The pharaoh of Egypt, the African cup holder are the most successful team (6 titles) that the continental competition has ever recorded. Regrettably Pharaohs' failed to qualify for South Africa 2010. This lack of form questione their readiness.
Ghanian Fans Ghanaian football fans are the fact that Black stars have given a good account of themselves in matches. Stars have been enjoying massive support from fans. By all account, the soccer fever sweeping the nation surpasses even the heydays of Ghanaian football.
Cameroun Football Team Cameroun emerges as a football force in Africa and has been able to set a number of records at the World Cup. The Indomitable Lions particpated in the World Cup 5 times (1982, 1990, 1994, 1998 and 2002); and first African team to reach the quarter finals.

Vahid Halilhodzic believes he was the sacrificial lamp.
Halilhodzic, who was expected to lead the Elephants in South Africa, was dismissed after his team lost to Algeria in the African Cup of Nations quarterfinals. This loss was Halilhodzic's first in 24 matches.  

Vahid said their goal was to win the CAN and politicians started to put the pressure on them. He said he could not understand why he was fired but believes the politicians needed someone to sacrifice which could not be the players but the coach. Last January in Angola, Ivory Coast wasted a 2-1 lead in injury time before losing to Algeria 3-2 after extra time.

"Until then, I was the best coach in the history of Ivory Coast," Halilhodzic said. "Eight minutes changed everything. But I knew perfectly well that it could happen when I accepted the mission."

Ivory Coast is now chasing Guus Hiddink for the upcoming World Cup. Hiddink, who guided Russia to the semifinals of the 2008 European Championship, coached South Korea at the World Cup in 2002 and Australia in 2006.

The Elephants will play in the same group as Brazil, Portugal and North Korea at the June 11-July 11 tournament.
