2017 AFCON FIXTURES AND SCHEDULE: Guinea-Bissau take on hosts Gabon in opener today.

All eyes on Africa as the eagerly anticipated 2017 Africa Cup of Nations kicks off this Saturday 15 January, when hosts Gabon will be counting on their talisman

 and Dortmund Forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (left) to see off Guinea- Bissau in the tournament's opening fixture at Stade d'Angondje 6.00 pm (CAT). However, Guinea-Bissau coach Baciro Cande has issued a warning to their (Gabon) counterparts and all the other teams that they will stop at nothing to achieve their target- to proceed into the next round, as they did in qualifiers. "We eliminated former champions Congo and Zambia and can perform even better. The squad will work ceaselessly to achieve good results. My squad comprises 23 proud professional footballers who are thinking only of bringing joy to the people of Guinea-Bissau. The best way to achieve that is by winning matches and qualifying for the quarter-finals in our Africa Cup debut," said Baciro.

Below is the full schedule of fixtures:
