Anyone been watching on Eurosport?

Not watched it fully but I've kept up with the major headlines from the tournament so far - Egypt getting knocked out by South Africa. Ghana losing on penalties, again. And then you have Madagascar in their first ever tournament stomping over everyone including Nigeria in the Group Stages

Will be keeping an eye out for their next match against Tunisia

Seen some of the games. Morocco have only themselves to blame for being knocked out in the round of 16 against Benin after Hakim Zayech missed a penalty (hit the post) with the last kick of the game at 0-0. Game went on to extra time and a penalty shoot-out which Morocco lost. Embarrassed


The nation holds it's breath...YES, WE'RE THERE!!!

Watched a few games, the group stage games weren't the best but the later stages should be better. A few players making silly mistakes or trying things they aren't capable of lets them down. Some of the Uganda players looked impressive. Koulibaly looks really impressive at this level.

Madagascar's dream is over. Kept it tight for 45 mins but once the first went in the floodgates kinda opened. 
Glad Tunisia didn't win AET as that's actually their first win within 90 minutes and they're into the semis Dead

Algeria vs Nigeria in the semi's you have to assume whoever wins will go onto the lift the trophy...

Senegal the best team in the tournament (even accounting for Algeria beating them in the group stages). Hopefully they get it done. Senegal Nigeria final I'd like to see. 

If it's Algeria Senegal there will be war I'd say.

Hopefully the massive outsiders Senegal come through in the end
