Gabon will host the AFCON in 2017 after beating Ghana and Algeria to the ticket.
The win means the biggest football tournament in Africa will return to the country that co-hosted it in 2012 with neighbours Equatorial Guinea.

The announcement will be a surprise considering the strength of the Algerian bid and the long absence of the tournament from North Africa but the close relationship between CAF boss Issah Hayatou and Gabonese President Ali Bongo seems to have clinched the win for the mineral rich Central African country.
