Football in Equatorial Guinea

It was during the Spanish colonialism that football arrived to Equatorial Guinea.[1][2] Football is now a very popular sport in the country.[3] Recently the national team has made a few surprising results.[4][5] In the qualification for the FIFA World Cup in 2006 Togo (who later qualified for the World Cup) was beaten 1-0, and in the qualification for the African Cup of Nations they beat Cameroon 1-0.

Equatorial Guinea co-hosted the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations with Gabon, and was the host of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
