Betting on the African Nations Championship

Betting on the African Nations Championship can be tricky due to the rules which state that players from the respective national championships can only participate. Knowing the squads is essential for having success betting on the tournament.

Unlike the Africa Cup of Nations, the competing national teams must be composed of players playing in their domestic league. For example, a Moroccan player is only eligible to play for the Morocco national team if he is playing for a Moroccan club.

With the tournament originally scheduled to be played in 2020 but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many teams will have had limited preparations which is another factor to take into account.
