Gabon

Nickname:
Azingo Nationale (Black Panthers)
Founded:
1962
Joined FIFA:
1966

Gabon's most successful spell in their country's history came between 1994 and 2000, when they qualified for three out of the four Africa Cup of Nations finals, reaching the quarterfinals in 1996.

And they are something of a surprise as qualifiers for the 2010 event, but appear to have found a new lease of life and ran Cameroon close for World Cup qualification in their pool.

They have managed just one win in their seven finals matches to date, that a 2-0 success against a much-fancied Zaire side in 1996, but otherwise it has been hard slog for the country at the continental showpiece.
