The Africa Cup of Nations trophy
The quartet have began their journey in the competition this week and three of them ended up on the winning side after their opening matches.
How did their first matches go?
Sadio Mané was the first player in action in the tournament. He helped Senegal secure their first win in this year’s AFCON on Monday after scoring a stoppage-time penalty in a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe.
Naby Keita helped Guinea to beat Malawi 1-0 at the Stade de Kouekong, in Bafoussam. Now, Keita and Mané will face each other this Friday at 13:00 (UK time).
On Tuesday, Mohamed Salah and Alex Iwobi both featured as Nigeria beat Egypt thanks to a beautiful goal from Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho.
Salah’s Pharaohs will face Guinea-Bissau next Saturday at the Stade Roumdé Adija in Garoua at 19:00 (UK time), while Nigeria will battle against Sudan at the Stade Roumdé Adija at 16:00 (UK time) on the same day.
