All eyes turn to Ghana as the countdown for the 26th African Nations Cup approaches the zero hour. 47 nations were divided into 11 groups of four teams and 1 group of 3 teams.The 12 group winners and the best 3 runners-up from groups with four teams (originally groups 1-11, now groups 2-11 after the withdrawal of Djibouti from group 1) qualified for the finals. More stats of that nature here.
And still with Africa - Emmanuel Adebayor won the 2007 BBC African Footballer of the Year a couple of days back.Fans won't get to see him play in Ghana though because his country Togo failed to qualify for the tournament - but that's good news for Arsenal I guess.
