The 2004 African Cup of Nations has come and gone and many South Africans would probably rather forget the tournament all together after Bafana Bafana's failure to reach the knockout stages.
The competition was dominated by the North African and West African teams, with the gold medal going to hosts Tunisia, who once again showed what a difference playing in front of a home crowd makes.
This year's edition of the AFCON produced a record-equalling 93 goals (including penalties), a number of upsets, the emergence of a new breed of young Nigerian players as well as impressive debut's for footballing minnows such as Rwanda and Zimbabwe.
