From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1974 African Cup of Nations was the ninth edition of the African Cup of Nations, the soccer championship of Africa (CAF). It was hosted by Egypt.

Just like in 1972, the field of eight teams was split into two groups of four. Zaire won its second championship (their first win came as the Democratic Republic of Congo), tying Zambia 2-2 in the final and beating them 2-0 in the replay . Zaire went on to qualify for the World Cup later that year.
