AFCON: Over 38 African top stars that’ll leave their Premier League clubs for one month [Full list]

No fewer than 38 footballers will leave their various club sides in the English Premier League for the African Cup of Nations in January, 2022.

The competition is scheduled to hold in Cameroon from January 9 to February 9, 2022.
