Egypt are the undisputed kings of the Africa Cup of Nations having claimed a record six titles, including the last two, and they will be amongst the favourites again in Angola.

They have been quarterfinalists at least in each of the last eight tournaments bar one (2004), have they have managed to convert their dominance at club level on the continent over the past decade or so into success at national team level.

After claiming the first two tournaments in 1957 and 1959, there followed a clutch of semifinal showings as they reached that stage in six of the next 11 championships, without going any further.

They broke their long winless streak by claiming the 1986 championship, and repeated that 12 years later by beating South Africa in the 1998 final.

There followed a slight lull in performances before they confidently won the event they hosted in 2006, before repeating the performance two years later in Ghana.

What price a hat-trick?
