AFCON '23 - After First Round

Sup y'all-

Alright, the upsets are on at AFCON!!!

Even though favorites are cleaning up at Asian Cup just a few countries away, AFCON has been rife with upsets with old favorites falling to surprising newcomers.  Namibia won their first ever AFCON game beating top 5 contender Tunisia, and have increased their odds to qualify for the knockout stage from 31% to almost 80%.  Also Cabo Verde got a huge win over the reeling Ghana, rocketing them to 1st place projected in their group -- and 91% chance to advance to the knockouts.  What a great tournament so far.
