Gabon - There will be no shortage of stars on show at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations from Saturday despite the absence of big guns Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa.
Each of the 368 footballers at match venues Libreville, Franceville, Malabo and Bata will dream that his country can conquer Africa and he can collect the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award given to the star of the three-week showcase.
The award has been the preserve of Egyptian midfielders in recent tournaments with veteran Ahmed Hassan voted No 1 in 2006 and 2010 and Hosny Abd Rabo topping the charts at the 2008 championship.
