African Cup of Nations
« on: November 09, 2014, 04:24:33 AM »
How many of our players could potentially be playing in the African Cup of Nations in January? The question could be hypothetical as there is talk that the competition may be called off.

I guess you take pick from Mulumbu, Anichebe and Ideye Brown.

All three this season haven't really featured and at the moment I wouldn't miss any of them.

Think I remember Benin (Stephane Sessegnon's side) didn't win one of their qualifying rounds.

Think I read on teletext that the host nation Morocco?? had not confirmed they were hosting this tournament,due to concerns about the Ebola outbreak,so perhaps that puts the tournament in doubt? Stand to be corrected!

So who are we going to miss, when do they leave and when will they be back?

Only Mulumbu.

Tournament starts 17th January and ends 8th February. But many players are leaving now to join up with their squads.

Congo are the lowest placed qualifying team and therefore will most likely struggle to get out of the group which contains themselves, Zambia, Tunisia and Cape Verde. Their last group game is played on 26th January. So If they don't qualify for the next round Mulumbu could be back for the game against Spurs on 31st January, only missing the games against Hull and Everton.


Jason Davidson is also off to the Asian Cup, but you did say miss...

Palace will be hit hardest; Bolaise goes with Mulumbu and Jedniak goes with Davidson, two of their best players.

That's what happens when your recruitment is from players eligible for those tournaments.

Think the lack of Mulumbu today had a lot to do with him missing the next few weeks.

Really shame we dont play Palace when the African cup of nations is on, arguably two of their best players.

The Africa Cup of Nations, which was scheduled to take place in Cameroon in January, has been postponed until 2022.

Huge news for us. We would’ve lost Ajayi and Hegazi for probably about a month in the middle of the season
