Ahead of the African Cup of Nations quarter-finals this weekend (January 28/29), IBTimes had a look at which English-based players still remain in the tournament.

Going into the last eight, the competition is extremely open with hosts Gabon, Algeria and Ivory Coast having all been eliminated. So who is playing who and which English-based players still remain in Gabon?

Burkina Faso vs Tunisia

Wahbi Khazri of Sunderland has been one of the stand-out players of the tournament so far for Tunisia – the midfielder was a linchpin in their impressive win over well fancied Algeria.

One from the BPL; Bezua Dieumerci Mbokani (Hull City), four from The Championship; Chancel Mbemba (Newcastle), Youssuf Mulumbu (Norwich City), Jacques Maghoma (Birmingham) and Neeskens Kebano (Fulham), and two from League One; Gabriel Zakuani (Peterborough) and Jordan Botaka (Charlton Athletic).

Opponents Ghana have five including Christian Atsu (Newcastle United) who was the player of the tournament in 2015. The four others include the Ayew brothers, Jordan and Andre (Aston Villa and Swansea respectively), Leicester City's Daniel Amartey and Barnsley's Andy Yiadom.
