Benin have a player from Sligo Rovers playing for them. Doesn't that say enough lol?
That said, they got Stéphane Sessegnon who cost PSG a lot of money while Razak Omotoyossi was pretty well known while in Sweden

Mozambique really are an unknown quantity. Main players for them play in neighbouring South Africa. I guess they'll just be happy to be there

Nigeria and Egypt to go through

BENIN

Strikers:
Aoudou Mohamed (Evian TG FC), Omotoyossi Razak (Metz, FRA), Poté Mickal (OGC Nice, FRA)

HISTORY:
Benin can make history at the 2010 Nations Cup by collecting their first-ever point at the competition after two previous finals appearances have yielded six straight defeats.

Their small country size and population has made it difficult for them to be a regular contender in African competition but they have made better use of their growing contingent of foreign-based players.

Benin also hosted the 2005 African Youth Championship and their under-20 side qualified for that tournament in third place for the World Youth Championships in the Netherlands the same year.

Their first appearance came in the 2004 tournament in Tunsia, where they lost all three matches, but got a late consolation goal against Nigeria in their very last match through Moussa Latoundji to record a first finals goal.

They would have been hoping for better when they arrived in Ghana for the 2008 tournament, but unfortunately for them it was more of the same, three defeats in a row and just a single goal scored, this time through Nigerian-born striker Razak Omotoyossi against Côte d'Ivoire.

EGYPT


Goalkeepers:
Essam Al-Hadary (Ismaili), Abdul-Wahed Al-Sayed (Zamalek), Mahmoud Aboul-Saoud (Mansoura)

Defenders:
El-Motassem Salem (Ismaili), Hani Saeid (Zamalek), Wael Gomaa (Al Ahly), Mahmoud Fathalla (Zamalek), Abdel-Zaher El-Sakaa (Eskasheir, TUR), Sayed Moawaed (Al Ahly), Mohamed Abdel-Sahfei (Zamalek), Ahmed Fathi (Al Ahly), Ahmed El-Mohammadi (ENPPI Cairo)

Forwards:
Emad Meteib (Al Ahly), Ahmed Raouf (ENPPI Cairo), Mohamed Zidan (Borussia Dortmund, GER), Sayed Hamdi (Petrojet).

HISTORY:
Egypt are the undisputed kings of the Africa Cup of Nations having claimed a record six titles, including the last two, and they will be amongst the favourites again in Angola.

They have been quarterfinalists at least in each of the last eight tournaments bar one (2004), have they have managed to convert their dominance at club level on the continent over the past decade or so into success at national team level.

After claiming the first two tournaments in 1957 and 1959, there followed a clutch of semifinal showings as they reached that stage in six of the next 11 championships, without going any further.

They broke their long winless streak by claiming the 1986 championship, and repeated that 12 years later by beating South Africa in the 1998 final.

There followed a slight lull in performances before they confidently won the event they hosted in 2006, before repeating the performance two years later in Ghana.

What price a hat-trick?

HISTORY:
Mozambique will be featuring in their fourth Africa Cup of Nations finals at the tournament in Angola, hoping to register a first win in the competition.

Their three previous visits have all ended in first round exits, with just one draw and eight defeats to show for their troubles.

They did feature in consecutive tournaments in 1996 and 1998, but for a country ravaged by civil war, that was about as good as it got.

There first showing came in 1986 when they lost all three matches without scoring a goal. In fact, they have netted just twice while conceding 18 in their nine matches to date.

There will be hope that the Class of 2010 can do better, under Dutch coach Mart Nooij they have managed to put together some fine results of late, including beating Tunisia in their final World Cup qualifier in November.

NIGERIA


Goalkeepers:
Vincent Enyeama (Hapoel Tel Aviv, ISR) Bamidele Aiyenugba (Bnei Yehuda, ISR) Austin Ejide (Unattached)

Defenders:
Joseph Yobo (Everton, ENG), Danny Shittu (Bolton, ENG), Obinna Nwaneri and Yusuf Mohammed (both FC Sion, SWI) Taye Taiwo (Marseille, FRA) Elderson Echiejile (Rennes, FRA), Chidi Odiah (CSKA Moscow, RUS), Onyekachi Apam (Nice, FRA).

Midfielders:
Nwankwo Kanu (Portsmouth, ENG), John Mikel Obi (Chelsea, ENG), Dickson Etuhu (Fulham, ENG) Sani Kaita (Lokomotiv Moscow, RUS) Yusuf Atanda Ayila (Dynamo Kiev, UKR), Oluwaseyi George Olofinjana (Hull City, ENG), Kalu Uche (Almeria, ESP).

HISTORY:
Arguably the 'nearly-men' of African football, Nigeria have won the Africa Cup of Nations on two occasions, but have been runners up a further four times.
In fact, they have been semifinalists 12 times, and their two victories signify an extremely poor conversion rate from there.

They first appeared in the tournament in 1963, when they bowed out in the first round, before having to wait until 1976 for their next showing, this time reaching the last four.

There followed a prosperous time in the country's football as they claimed the title in 1980 and 1994, finishing runners-up on three more occasions in between.

They chose not to particpate in the 1996 event in South Africa for political reasons, and were subsequently suspended from the 1998 tournament too.

Since then they have finished as runners-up (2000), semifinalists (2002, 2004, 2006) and quarterfinalists (2008), a worrying backward trend for the Super Eagles.

African keepers are clowns of highest order. WTF was that from Enyeama?

Mozambique was 0-2 down very early in the game against Benin through two silly defensive mistakes but they have now levelled and are looking much better than their opponents...maybe another great turnaround is going to happen...22' to go.

Not a great result for Mozambique or Benin, I think if either of them had a chance of getting out of this group, it would have been essential to capitalize on Nigeria's loss today. Some truly comical goalkeeping today, I might add. Egypt looked like it could repeat.
