In April, Senegalese football legend El Hadji Diouf said: “I hope they win the title as there are many other good teams -Egypt will be at the forefront with Morocco and Nigeria.”


The head coach of the Nigerian football team, Gernot Rohr, t placed Morocco is among his favorites to win along with Egypt.


“According to the last FIFA ranking, Morocco is currently the best in Africa, while Egypt will play at home and enjoy the support of their fans, and for this reason, both teams are the closest to the title,” he said.


The flagship tournament will be held in June 2019 in Egypt.


Head coach of Moroccan national football team Herve Renard has expressed confidence on his team for CAN.


“To win, you must stay focused and prepare for the competition to the fullest of your potential,” said Renard.
