The knockout rounds of AFCON 2019 kick off in early July, with Australian football fans able to tune in live for all fixtures. Here's your Africa Cup of Nations TV guide.

The Africa Cup of Nations started in June, but the knockout stages, starting with the round of 16, begin in July. Hosted by Egypt, this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations tournament has already proved to be action-packed, so it's natural to be excited to find out who will be crowned as the continent's king of football. With 16 teams still in the mix, the stakes are at an all-time high.

Cameroon are the reigning champions, tasked with battling it out with Nigeria in the round of 16.
