Following the qualifiers which ended last weekend, all the teams set to take part in the finals of the TotalEnergies African Nations Championship (CHAN) 2022 have been revealed. CAFOnline.com takes a look at each zone.
NORTH ZONE: Algeria, Morocco, Libya
In addition to Algeria qualified as hosts of the tournament, Morocco and Libya will take part in the CHAN as UNAF representatives. Both the Atlas Lions and the Mediterranean Knights participated in the 2020 edition held in Cameroon and Morocco were crowned champions.
WEST A ZONE: Senegal, Mali, Mauritania
By beating (PSO 5-3) Guinea who was considered as their “bête noire” after having deprived them of 2016, 2018 and 2020 finals, Senegal return to the CHAN 11 years later. During the first leg of the last qualifying round, Pape Thiaw’s colts had won narrowly 1-0. The same score was recorded in the return leg, this time in favour of Guinea, and Senegal had to wait for the fateful penalty shootout to qualify.
