But does Cote d’Ivoire deserve the title more than Botswana and Niger? Botswana has achieved the feat of being the first to get it’s qualification in a group whose favorites were Tunisia, Togo and Sudan. A first in the history of football in this country. Niger has done even better. His first appearance in the finals, he ensured driven out of the race of Egypt, triple champion of Africa and South Africa. No less!
