Bug names like Nigeria, Egypt, Republic of South African and Tunisia are not present in the competition this year.

 

Nigeria were stunned by West African neighbours during the West African Zone B qualification series, loosing out to Togo heavily in the first leg on the road and could not replicate the form of the away side in the second leg in Nigeria.

 

The likes of Tunisia were banned from the competition scheduled to take place in Cameroon.
