The players, coaches, organizing officials and fans at the AFCON 2021 tournament in Cameroon are assured of insurance should there be any shortcoming.

This extinguishes any fears of threats from the rebels that surfaced some days back as the tournament kicked off.

A partnership between Confederation of African Football (CAF) and insurance gurus, Prudential Africa cements the relationship.

Meanwhile, action continues on Friday, January 14, 2022 with four in the championship that was pushed ahead from 2021 to 2022 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Two matches come in group B with Senegal taking on Guinea at Stade Omnisports de Bafoussam.

Two wounded lions; Malawi and Zimbabwe will later face off at the same venue.

In group C, North Africans Morocco play Comoros at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium before Gabon and Ghana will lockhorns as well at the same Ahmadou Ahidjo arena.
