Gabon and Zambia will just be happy to be there, though some players from there will obviously be trying to make a name for themselves. Jacob Mulenga - FC Utrecht - has made a decent start to his Eredivisie career. Could this be a springplank for him?

Cameroon and Tunisia should go through

Attackers:
Paul Alo'o Efloulou (AS Nancy, FRA), Achille Webo (Real Mallorca, ESP), Mohamadou Idrissou (SC Freiburg, GER), Samuel Eto'o (Internazionale, ITA)

HISTORY:
Four-time winners Cameroon go into the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in red-hot form and looking to make up for the disappointment of their Final defeat in the last competition in Ghana two years ago.

They went down 1-0 to Egypt on that occasion, but under new French coach Paul Le Guen there is a new-found confidence in the Indomitable Lions and a belief that this could be their year.

One of the traditional powerhouses of the continent, they have qualified for all but one (1994) finals tournament since 1982, and in that time managed all four of their wins.

The 1980s were a fantastic period for the side and they claimed the 1984 and 1998 tournaments, with the core of that team going on to perform so admirably at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

The 1990s were not much to write home about, but the turn of the centruty saw the side once again dominate as they won consecutive championships in 2000 and 2002.

A couple of quarterfinal appearances followed, but for that finals disappointment in Ghana, which will be a spur if ever they needed one for the Class of 2010 to go all the way.

Nations Cup Record:
1968: Did not qualify
1970: Qualified for the finals, did not progress past the first round
1972: Semifinalists

HISTORY:
Gabon's most successful spell in their country's history came between 1994 and 2000, when they qualified for three out of the four Africa Cup of Nations finals, reaching the quarterfinals in 1996.

And they are something of a surprise as qualifiers for the 2010 event, but appear to have found a new lease of life and ran Cameroon close for World Cup qualification in their pool.

They have managed just one win in their seven finals matches to date, that a 2-0 success against a much-fancied Zaire side in 1996, but otherwise it has been hard slog for the country at the continental showpiece.

Nations Cup Record:
1972: Did not qualify

Ahmed Akaichi (Etoile Sahel), Amine Chermiti (Al Ittihad Jeddah, KSA), Zouheir Dhaouadi (Club Africain), Issam Jomaa (Racing Lens, FRA), Youssef Msakni (Esperance Tunis).


HISTORY:
Tunisia were a power in the early years of the Africa Cup of Nations, reaching the semifinals at their first try in 1962 and finishing runners-up in 1965.

But there followed 31 barren years, punctuated only by a semifinal appearance in 1978 and just two more first round exits.

They finished runners-up to hosts South Africa in 1996, and followed that up with a quarterfinal showing in 1998 and the semifinals in 2000.

But the country's finest hour in the competition came in 2004 as they beat Morocco 2-1 in the final of a tournament they hosted to achieve a maiden continental success.

Since then they have had a pair of quarterfinal finishes, and will be hoping to do better than that in Angola, to try and make up for the disappointment of missing out on a World Cup place on the final day of qualifying. They will play their 50th finals match in their first game in Angola.

Nations Cup Record:
1962: Semifinalists
1963: Qualified for the finals, did not progress past the first round
1965: Runners-up

HISTORY:
Zambia have gone out in the first round of five of the last six Africa Cup of Nations finals, having qualified for the event at all in 2004.

It is a frustrating run for a country that has a proud history in the tournament, though they have yet to put their name on the winners trophy yet, despite some close shaves.

They were runners-up in the 1974 competition, losing in the final to Zaire after a replay, and followed that up with another runners-up finish in 1994, the year after a tragic plane crash had killed 18 members of the playing squad.

There have also been some semifinal placings (1982, 1990 and 1996), but recent history has not been kind to Chipolopolo.

Nations Cup Record:
1970: Did not qualify
1972: Did not qualify

Not sure Gabon will "just be happy to be there", they were close to WC Qualification at one point. They could very well cause an upset in this group.

this Tunisian team pisses me off so much, the players roll around so much and when no foul is called they get up in two seconds. When will players learn that when you roll around 50 times its obvious you are not injured?

I'm sure a guy who actually broke his leg wouldn't be rolling around like a nutjob
