Ideally, the discussion leading up to the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations, which begins today as the hosts Cameroon face Burkina Faso in Yaoundé, would have centred on potential winners, surprise packages and stand-out players.

Will Senegal, with their depth of talent, triumph for the first time? Why do Nigeria have an interim coach?
