AFCON 2023 Round of 16 Fixtures & Kick-off Time

It was an interesting group stage matches in the ongoing AFCON 2023 as some big guns in Africa football has been knocked out of the tournament such as former champions Ghana, Algeria, and Tunisia, while host Ivory Coast narrowly escaped elimination.

In a unique twist, Ivory Coast received a second chance after Morocco defeated Zambia on Wednesday night, January 24. Despite finishing third in Group A, Ivory Coast’s 2-0 victory over Guinea-Bissau, 1-0 loss to Nigeria, and unexpected 4-0 defeat to Equatorial Guinea meant they could only advance as one of the four best losers.

Their fate hinged on the outcome of the Group E teams’ game on Wednesday evening, with just one slot available. Zambia, with 2 points in three games, was expected to beat Morocco for the slot but suffered a 1-0 defeat, allowing Ivory Coast, with three points, to claim the spot and advance to the round of 16.
