Participating nations

The 1957 Africa Cup of Nations was the first edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, the football championship of Africa (CAF), and was hosted by Sudan. The participating teams were Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia.

Overview

South Africa were due to play Ethiopia in the semi-finals, but were disqualified due to apartheid.[1] Ethiopia therefore had a bye to the final, whilst in the other semi-final at Municipal Stadium in Khartoum, the Egyptians beat the host nation 2-1.[2]

In the final Egypt beat Ethiopia 4-0, with all four goals scored by El-Diba, who finished the tournament as top scorer with five goals. Only two games were played in this first edition.[1]
