There are four nations left to battle it out for the crown of best team in Africa as the 2022 Africa Nations Cup is in the semifinals. The complete schedule for the tournament follows below.

Defending champion Algeria is out after suffering elimination in the group stage. But the other 2019 finalist, Senegal, remains in the hunt for its first-ever AFCON championship. Host Cameroon has also advanced to the semifinals, as it seeks to win the title again after its last triumph in 2017.

Egypt has won the tournament more often than any other nation (seven), but it hasn’t hoisted the trophy since 2010. Fans of the Pharaohs will hope Liverpool superstar forward Mohamed Salah can continue to carry the team deep to the final. After getting past Morocco in the quarterfinals, Egypt will meet host Cameroon in the semifinals.

AFCON 2022: Tournament format

Similar to other continental championships and World Cup tournaments, the Africa Cup of Nations began with a group stage, followed by knockout rounds all the way to the final. And for the first time in the competition’s history, all 52 matches are featuring video review and the use of a Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Group stage: The 24 nations were divided into six groups of four nations each. At the conclusion of round-robin group play — with three points awarded for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss — the top two teams in each group based on points (and tiebreakers, if necessary) advanced to the knockouts. The remaining slots in the Round of 16 were filled out by the four best third-place finishers.

Knockout stage: A predetermined knockout bracket will be played out all the way through to the final. If any knockout match ends in a tie after 90 minutes, the teams will play 30 minutes of extra time. If the draw persists, a penalty-kick shootout will determine the team to move on. The third-place match is the only one that would skip extra time and move straight to the shootout in case of a draw.
