3 Ghana

Ghana won the African cup of nations in 1963 1978 1982 and another year and made it to the finals and lost to Ivory Coast on penalties and made it to the 2010 quarterfinals in the World Cup they would have made it to the semifinals if Luis Suarez

Ghana dominated the teams it played against in the 2010 World Cup and were clearly unfortunate not to reach the Semi-Finals.

Ghana have won it the second most times also Egypt aren't good anymore they didn't qualify World Cup HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT Egypt FANS

Only team that made to the semi-final

4 Cameroon

The Lions are indomitable, and on average symbolize the most representable pack of champions from the continent. Their achievements resonate worldwide and their reputation of producing some of the most talented geniuses in the history of international football, leaves the organization nothing short of super stardom.

The Indomitable lions is a team that is giving football its real name. producing interesting characters of the game that is really popularizing the game.

From statistics, Africa nations cup, olympics, under 20 world cup quater finalist, world cup quarter finalist, and the only nation from Africa to ever have reached the confederation cup final...Cameroon is the greatest of all times..

Current winners of AFCON 2016

12 Uganda

Ateam that finished on top of Ghana in the world cup qualifiers finishing second behind egypt

Udanda is the best

13 Zambia

Zambia is definitely one of the best African teams of all time and makes the top 10. They won their first Afcon in 2012 and have being regular contenders at the tournament for a long time having being reached 3 finals losing twice to Congo DR and Nigeria before beating Ivory Coast in 2012. Today the are honestly more of an average side than a power house but were one of Africa's finest national teams from the 70's to early 1990's. They may be yet to qualify for their first World Cup but are definitely the best African side yet to qualify for the tournament.

This nation had the entire national team dead and they assembled another team in less than month and went on to reach the continent highest tournament

Just because

There is hope
