The Comoequa takes its name from the river Como, whose waters cross the two host countries: Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. Its technology is the same that has been used to manufacture the Tango 12, the ball designed for the 2012 Eurocup and its predominant color is yellow, with details in the colors of the flags of the host countries.
The African Nations Cup begins in January and Ghana has been handed a fairly difficult draw for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations. West African rivals Mali and Guinea will be in Group D alongside Botswana. With champions Egypt and some of Africa’s other major powers not qualifying, the tournament also sees former World Cup qualifiers Angola paired with Ivory Coast, Sudan and Burkina Faso in Group B. Morocco and Tunisia will clash in Group C, with debutants Niger and Gabon; while hosts Equatorial Guinea will play the newly liberated Libya, along with Senegal and Zambia.
