I agree on Morocco.

Egypt however do not have the overall quality accross the starting 11 that Morocco has, but they are the host. I think Egypt will fall in the Semis.

I chose one of Nigeria, Senegal, or Morocco to win.

Going by past precedent the favourites never win, and it is always a team under the radar.

If we look at past winners none were favourites

Cameroon - favourites Senegal
CIV - favourites Algeria
Nigeria - favourites CIV
Zambia - favourites CIV

Could it be a resurgent CIV who have an explosive offence ?



Egypt are not only the hosts, but are Nations Cup specialists. They are playing good football under Javier Aguirre, and of course have the talismanic Salah. They have to be favorites to win.

Beyond Egypt, Morocco and Senegal are the two best teams in Africa and should be the co-favourites. As for the Super Eagles, I really like our team and this is the best team we've had since the Christian Chukwu and Augustine Eguavon led teams of the early to mid 2000s. However I hesitate to see us as favorites given the question marks surrounding our goalkeeping. However, we are certainly one of the contenders and if one of our goalkeepers steps and has a good tournament, we are certainly capable of winning it.



Nigeria has a goalkeeper that lets in shots taken from the half way line and some people think they have a chance at winning lol the goal keeper doesn’t know the rules and picks up the ball outside the 18

Waiswa is out with a knee injury! :shock: :shock:

Kai, Africa and the world will not see this talented lad at work.

Maybe in two years.

WHAT'S ALL THIS BROUHAHA ABOUT THE GOALKEEPING?


Wasn't this the same group that managed the WC qualifiers & tournament, as wells as the AFCON qualifiers? If they are good enough then, have they become bad all of a proverbial sudden?

Our goalkeeping was poor during the ANC qualification. Uzoho was fine during the World Cup, but last season he was hardly getting games at his clubside which translated to shaky performances in goal for Nigeria. Ezenwa has some ability but is yet to show that he can be trusted with making consistently good decisions. Perhaps this will be his opportunity to prove himself if Rohr is still uneasy about Uzoho. As for Akpeyi, the less said about him, the better.

With his performances for the Black Stars Gyan has certainly earned his place as a legend of African football. With that being said, he has been underwhelming this season, so I wouldn't be surprised if Appiah's plan truly was to bring him off the bench.

Gyan has a very impressive record with the Black Stars, one very few players in Africa can match. His club career on the other hand is average.

Wow,it's that easy,he may be a Legend in Ghana but having won nothing at senior level what makes him an African legend?The word legend shouldn't be thrown around like that as there are forgotten players that have scored in AFCON finals and won titles (Mba) but serial penalty blunderers are being called African legends,OK!
