Can't they play in the rain? England is one of the rainiest country's in the world and hosts football all year round.

The rain in England is nowhere near as bad as the ones in the Rainforest... whether it's in the Congo Jungle or the Amazon. No comparison.

This. You wouldn't even be able to see the ball during a heavy tropical rain, nevermind actually play, unless you intended to swim on the pitch. Also infrastructure can be heavily affected by resulting landslides and floods.

And since both the Afcon and Asian Cup have been expanded to 24 teams it means now even a shorter pool of possible host countries. Don't know about Africa but in Asua it's gonna be Gulf countries, Australia and East Asian ones hosting it almost all the time. 

You mean that it's going to be the wealthy countries with very good infrastructure, that will be able to host these tournaments. I agree and if you have that many teams in a tournament, you want to give each squad a decent hotel to stay at and provide them with training facilities that meet the required standards.

A lot of teams at AFCON don’t look great as a whole, like Algeria, genuinely comical display against Sierra Leone.

But Nigeria looked like a solid outfit and Iheanacho’s goal was beautiful 

Undefeated team in 35+ matches, 0-0 draw against Sierra Leone first time they didn't score in a game since 2018. Group stages of all international competition now have these dull games bcz of format, England drew 0-0 with Scotland at home

This ref blew the final whistle at 85 minutes, realised his mistake then ended the game later on 89:50, no injury time

Something similar happened in Germany in the 70's. Wolf-Dieter Ahlenfelder ended the first half after 32 minutes. It later turned out that he was drunk as a skunk. xD

That's funny, but if I'm the head of the Tunisia FA, I'd be writing to FIFA to have this guy banned from refereeing ever again

I expected more from Senegal, the Ivory Coast, Egypt and Algeria, given that they are sides with a lot of talent within their squads. Ghana have been especially disappointing. Nigeria, Morocco and the hosts Cameroon have looked the most impressive sides so far, but the knockout stages should be much more exciting than the group games have been. Maybe some of the sides can pick up form and play to their potential at that stage, as it will be do or die.

Nigeria could meet Senegal in the latter stages. I think that'll be a decent match. 

Although perhaps quite cagey. I think heat and temperature is playing a big part in some of the games so far.

Yeah, that should be a good game. The heat definitely seems to be a factor influencing these games so far. Algeria having the oldest team in the tournament might be a reason affecting their underwhelming performances.
