Five African National Teams That Have Never Qualified For AFCON.

1. Seychelles

The Seychelles Football Federation governs the Seychelles national football team, which represents the country in international competition. Since 1986, Seychelles has been a member of the Confederation of African Football. Unfortunately, the Seychelles national football team has never qualified for the AFCON event since its inception.

2. Somali

Somalia's national football team, nicknamed the Ocean Stars, represents the country in international competition.

This problematic country, situated on the horn of Africa in the continent's east, has never competed in the AFCON. Despite participating in a few qualifiers in the past, civil conflict, internal instability, and the breakdown of a recognized government have precluded organized sports like as football from being played in Somalia.

3. Lesotho

The Lesotho Football Association governs the Lesotho national football team, which represents Lesotho in men's international football. "Likuena" is the team's nickname. In history, the squad has never qualified for the FIFA World Cup finals or the African Cup of Nations final.

4. South Sudan

The South Sudan Football Association controls the South Sudan national football team, which represents South Sudan in international football. They are among the well-known African nations who have never qualified for an AFCON competition.

5. Chad

The Chad national football team represents Chad in international football and is governed by the Chadian Football Federation. Chad has never qualified for the AFCON, owing mostly to a lack of money, which forces them to withdraw midway through the qualifications.
