    CAN-2019: 4 new qualified, a historic first for Mauritania, four new qualified for CAN-2019 are known: the regulars that are Algeria, Guinea and the Ivory Coast validated Sunday their tickets for Cameroon (15 June-13 July), where they will be accompanied by Mauritania , for a historical first.

    It is a great feat that the Frenchman Corentin Martins has achieved: to send the 104th world nation to the first CAN in its history. And the Mourabitounes have not done in detail to qualify, winning four of their first five games, the last against Botswana (2-1) was synonymous with qualifying even before the last day.

    On the side of Nouakchott, the hero is named Ismaël Diakité: the attacker of US Tataouine, in Tunisian D1, signed a doubled and overthrown Zebras already eliminated. Champagne!

    In Conakry, the bottles had already been cut as the Central African Republic could not bring more than a draw from Rwanda (2-2), qualifying at the same time Guinea and Ivory Coast even before their match.

    The national Syli and the Elephants have also neutralized (1-1), without much enthusiasm, in a match that smacked the Ligue 1: former Nice Jean Michaël Seri, well served by the former Parisian Serge Aurier , indeed equalized for Ivory Coast, answering Auxerrois Mohamed Yattara.

    Not complicated either for Algeria. The Fennecs, led by a Riyad Mahrez XXL and author of a double, played in Togo (4-1) and quietly validated their ticket for their fourth CAN of rank.

    With ten points to a day of the end, the men of Djamel Belmadi can not be dislodged by Benin, 2nd with 7 points, nor by Togo, 3rd with 5 points, who clash on the last day.

    They join Senegal, Madagascar, Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Uganda, Mali and Cameroon, the organizing country, to form a list of 13 qualified out of the 24 expected in Cameroon on June 15 to July 13th.

    The last nine will have to wait until the 6th and last day, in March, last chance for Ghana brothers Ayew or Burkina Faso Bertrand Traore.

    One thing is certain, this 32nd edition of the CAN will be without Zambia, champion of Africa 2012 but who has not managed to extricate himself from a group that includes Guinea-Bissau, Namibia and Mozambique.
