Who in their right minds, would put Egypt, DRC, Uganda and Zimbabwe in the same group?
This is insanity of the highest order! :!: :!:

Group of death? Heck, no! This takes it to a whole other level! :shock: :shock:

It's good for TV though. :)
I smell a rat, a big fat one to boot.

The teams that make it out of that group have a very good chance of winning the whole thing.

Egypt and DRC will make it out of that group, wouldn't rule out Zimbabwe causing a major upset though... Uganda will be last in that group.

In spite of all the noise in Group D, this is actually the toughest group from top to bottom based on average FIFA rating for April 2019. https://www.aclsports.com/totalafcon-2019-nigeria-in-easy-group-but-does-it-really-matter/

What is tough in this group? This is AFCON not COSAFA cup. Very easy ride for Egypt but upsets are normal in any championship. Uganda and Zimbabwe? Nigeria's U20 will easily make it out of this group.

Some of these guys don't much about African footie.
It also doesn't help that Nigeria didn't qualify for the last two tournaments.

Its only madness if you are from Uganda.
Egypt have it a bit easy. No West African team in their group.

Nigeria have suffered o. I was going to tell you guys to forgive him, because life is all about perspective...Egypt vantage point (looking from up to down) may be different from others teams(group A) but Kabalega may be onto something here :sneaky:

We qualified ahead of DR Congo in the group. Not only am I surprised that we are in the same group as them at AFCON again but I am even more surprised that so many CE's are writing us off. On the green grass we shall see!!

:rotf: In CE countries south of Angola and Zambia (including South Africa) are not considered footballing nations; CE is still stuck in time, 1990s to be exact.

Kama Biliat is a beast but the Crane's defence is up to the task.

Egypt and Uganda were in the same group for the last AFCON tournament and World Cup qualifiers (split the games).

We know enough about African football - we have win the AFCON three times and qualified comfortably from a WCQ group that also had Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia - now that was a tough group.

We are writing you off because your team has many unknowns. But we will be happy if you do well.

You also know enough not to qualify for two consecutive AFCON tournaments. :sneaky:

I take it you were on sabbatical when Algeria, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Zambia (AKA 3 of the last 4 African champions) were drawn in the same World Cup qualifying group. Do tell - which group do you think is more ridiculous, Algeria, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Zambia, or Egypt, DRC, Uganda and Zimbabwe. How many AFCONs have DRC, Uganda and Zimbabwe won in the last 30 years? You are talking about 4 countries that have a grand total of 1 World Cup appearance in the last 30 years between them.

30 years? Walk me through this....

In 1978, Uganda Cranes sleepwalked to a win against 9ja in AFCON.
Only to lose to hosts, Ghana who sabotaged the team at every chance they got off the field.

Anyway, it was not until the UG Cranes stopped going to AFCON that a certain W. African nation, on the Niger river, won it. Now the Cranes are back to reclaim their rightful position.

Curiously, .... a makeshift UG Cranes team drew 0-0 in Nigeria. The previous game in Nigeria was a 0-1 win for Uganda. Before that a 2-1 win for Uganda at Namboole and before that a Nigerian 1-0 win in the robbery at Abeokuta, that was so bad that even 9ja journalists ran onto the field for answers from the match officials.

But that is history.
Recently, 9ja drew 0-0 with the UG Cranes in Nigeria. Their coach, Rohr later claimed that their main goal was to score goals. They failed to do so against a makeshift Cranes team. Africa's finest, Onyango didn't even play! :shock:

A few days ago, 9ja's finest struggled to a 1-0 win against a 2nd string Egyptian team in Nigeria.
If I were Nigerian, I would be lobbying CAF to have group B avoid group A teams.
After the Pot ranking wahala, I trust that Pinnick is on the case. :thumbs:
Will CAF bite though?
Let us siddon look :!:

You did not actually answer any of my questions. You strangely mentioned 1978 (41 years ago) for some odd reason when I asked you about the last 30 years.
