Afcon qualifiers: Meet the air traffic controller directing Cape Verde's footballing ascent

Cape Verde's ascent through African international football over the past decade has been remarkable, and at the heart of their progress is Janito Carvalho, one of two air traffic controllers to have taken an influential role in the tiny island nation's rise through the African game.

Carvalho, along with his friend and fellow coach Luis Antunes, have overseen the progression and sporting education of the country's finest footballing generation, while simultaneously juggling jobs as air traffic controllers,...

Africa Cup of Nations 2021 qualifiers: The road to Cameroon begins

Less than four months have passed since Baghdad Bounedjah's bizarre, looping second-minute effort secured the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations title for Algeria, yet the continent's major sides are resuming hostilities.

Morocco hire former Japan boss Halilhodzic as coach

Vahid Halilhodzic signed a four-year contract as the new coach of Morocco but was handed a tough list of targets by his new employers.

The 67-year-old Bosnian replaces Herve Renard, who quit after Morocco were eliminated in the last-16 of the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt despite being one of the favourites.

The new coach has been tasked with reaching the semi-finals of the next Africa Cup of Nations in 2021, qualifying Morocco for the World Cup in Qatar the year after, and winning the Cup of Nations...

While the African Cup of Nations final may have been tough to watch, Steve Nicol says Algeria's defence deserves a lot of credit for their victory.

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations ended with Algeria victorious but plenty of players helped or hurt their transfer prospects in the 2019-20 season. ESPN FC's Nick Ames picks out several who boosted or busted their chances of a big summer move.

Players whose value increased

Ismael Bennacer, MF, Empoli/Algeria

The Algerian midfielder was named AFCON's best player and few would seriously disagree. He was not flashy and made none of the headline contributions provided by the likes of Riyad Mahrez...

FIFA bans two African officials for corrupt practices

African football official Musa Hassan Bility has been banned from the game for 10 years by FIFA's ethics committee following an investigation into the finances of the Liberia Football Association (LFA).

FIFA said that Bility was "guilty of having misappropriated FIFA funds as well as having received benefits and found himself in situations of conflict of interest, in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics."

Bility is a former president of the LFA and a current member of the executive of the Confederation...
