Africa Cup of Nations 2012 Live Thread

EDIT 2/4: Reviving this thread for the match today. A Tiote-less Cote d'Ivoire faces Equatorial Guinea, the team that knocked Senegal out, at 1900 GMT. To follow this and other games, make sure you check out SBN's coverage of the AFCON. If Cote d'Ivoire loses today, Tiote comes home and gets to play against Spurs. If not...we'll have to wait until February 25 to see him again. Since Cheik isn't going to be playing, I assume we're all on board with rooting against the Ivorians...

Newcastle have 3 players participating in the Africa Cup of Nations this year: Ivorian Cheik Tiote and Senegalese players Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse. We will be tracking these two nations, both favorites to reach the final, as they progress through the tournament. Newcastle supporters are in the unique position of hoping their players do well while their teams do not - the longer they stay alive, the longer they stay away from the Toon.

Howay the lads?
