Sixteen nations again line up for the biennial continental championship, seeking Africa's top sporting prize at the tournament which starts Saturday and finishes on Feb. 8 .It was the only country willing to step in at the last moment, saving the finals from being moved to Qatar.It is a tournament that this time has no clear favorites and in which almost all the teams will believe they can emerge as champions at the end of the three-week event.The Ivory Coast have often been favorites but crashed out at the last five tournaments, unable to add to their one success in 1992 .The tournament will be played at four venues.
