Participating nations

The 1959 African Cup of Nations was the second edition of the African Cup of Nations, the football championship of Africa (CAF). It was hosted by Egypt (United Arab Republic). Only three teams participated: Egypt (United Arab Republic), Sudan, and Ethiopia.

With only three teams, the format changed into a round robin group, but the results were the same, Egypt won over Ethiopia 4-0 and over Sudan 2-1. The Sudanese finished second, defeating Ethiopia 1-0. This edition will also be remembered because of the three coaches from Eastern Europe: the Czechoslovakian Starosta (Ethiopia) and Hada (Sudan), the Hungarian Pal Titkos, coach of Egypt.
