The final list of countries that will make it to AFCON 2017 in Gabon is now known after the last round of games were played between September 2nd to 4th.
The usual ‘suspects’ made it, champions Ivory Coast will launch a defence of their title, Ghana, losing finalists the last time out, will look to go one better. Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia and Cameroon all qualified.
The biggest story from the qualifiers however is of Uganda, who return to the AFCON after over 30-years absence. We look at social media reaction after they booked their place in Gabon.
These 15 teams along with hosts Gabon will make up the 16-team tournament next year.
