Soccer fever has gripped the African continent, as participating teams in the 2010 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) have started to arrive at their respective host cities in Angola for the continental soccer showpiece.

The AFCON 2010 is scheduled to kick off on Sunday in the Angolan capital, Luanda, with host Angola, affectionately known as ” Palancas Negras “, taking on Mali at Luanda’s 50,000 capacity stadium.

The opening and the closing ceremonies of the AFCON will also be hosted at the Luanda stadium that is situated in Camama, 17 kilometres from the capital and 10 km from Luanda Sul on a new dual carriage way.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) reported on its web site Sunday that Burkina Faso was the first nation to reach its venue in Cabinda since 31 December.

The hosting side “Palancas Negras” left Lisbon, Portugal on Sunday, following a five-week training camp there.

The next team expected in Angola on Wednesday is Nigeria’s “Super Eagles”, flying from South Africa where they have been camping at the coastal town of Durban that will also be their host during the 2010 World Cup billed for later this year.

The flights carrying the national teams from Ghana and Algeria will land on Thursday respectively from South Africa and Marseilles in France, the continental soccer body web site said.

The last confirmed arrival on 11 January is that of Cameroun’s ‘Indomitable Lions’, coming from a training camp in Nairobi, Kenya.
