Pierre Emerick Aubameyang's teammates reached the quarterfinals in 1996 and 2012. This time, Gabon will count on its fans just like in 2012 and on its stars like Evouna and Lemina.
However, this group favorite remains Cameroon. A team that has a lot of big stars such as N'Koulo and Aboubakar. The Lions could win their 5th African trophy after 1984, 1988,2000 and 2002.
Burkina Faso could constitute a threat for the two nations. Jonathan Pitroipa's teammates made a big surprise in 2013 and were beaten by Nigeria.
Finally, Guinea Bissau already made a big achievement by qualifying to the final round of this competition. It's the first appearance for this nation in the African competition. The Guinean players will play without any pressure.
