Angola is a top tourism destination for 2024

Afcon 2024 is one of remembrance for the Angola nation despite being kicked out in the Quarter Finals the spirit of the Angolans remains high as they celebrate this significant milestone.

Angola’s football history in Afcon is brief having qualified for the first time in 1996 and never being able to pass the group stage.

However, this competition demonstrated the potential that the Angolan football team has as they surprisingly came out top in their group stage ahead of 2019 champions Algeria and Burkina Faso and made it to the Quarterfinals for the first time.

For many, this is a shock for a team ranked 117th in the world that is typically dismissed and rarely recognized.

However, despite their defeat to Nigeria the Angola football team demonstrated to the continent that they were a force to be reckoned with and showcased their new youthful team full of talent.

The people of Angola’s ability to stay high in spirits and cheerfulness was highlighted in their response to Angola’s defeat as they celebrated with dances and music greeting the football team gleefully at the airport.

This achievement is likely to leave Angola more united and internationally recognised, attracting interest and more tourists.

Angola’s presence in the competition lingered with the assistant referee in the final being Angolan.

While other defeated African nations may look back at the competition with disappointment Angolans celebrate with pride and glee the success of their football team and look forward to a prosperous future in football.

Furthermore, this achievement boosts national morale during a time of economic challenges with foreign exchange fluctuations, but it has also inspired the youth, who form a majority of the population.

This competition is an example of why Angola stands out in Africa as a place to visit due to the people’s fun culture and celebratory nature. The Palancas Negras fell but with their head held high.
