Participating nations

The 1957 African Cup of Nations was the first edition of the African Cup of Nations, the soccer championship of Africa (CAF). It was hosted by Sudan, and three teams participated: Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia (South Africa was disqualified because of apartheid).

In 1956 apartheid had increased its presence in South Africa, so their national team was ejected from the tournament. Ethiopia had a bye to the final, while at Stade Municipal in Khartoum, the Egyptians beat the host nation 2-1. The final was much easier for Egypt: 4-0 against Ethiopia, all the goals were scored by Ad-Diba, who finished the tournament as top scorer with 5 goals. Only two games were played to give Egypt the African Champions title.
