AFCON 2021: Sunday Oliseh names three title favourites

Former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has named the three countries that are favourites to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.

Oliseh said that Nigeria, Senegal and Algeria are the three countries that can win the 2021 AFCON.

Recall that Algeria won the last edition of the AFCON in Egypt in 2019 after beating Senegal in the final.

Nigeria, meanwhile, finished third after beating Tunisia 1-0 in the third-place match, thanks to Odion Ighalo’s early first-half goal.

“I honestly always believe that my country, Nigeria, can always lift the title, especially when it comes to Africa. Then, I must be honest, as a coach, Senegal is extremely certain,” Oliseh was quoted by Complete Sport as saying when asked to name three countries that can win the 2021 AFCON.

“The fact is that at the moment, they might not win it, but when you are talking of capability, they have the most fearsome team in Africa. Algeria is also dangerous, they are the current Arab champions.

“But you know what is good about the Nations Cup, every team, you have got to play them once. The thing there is that it is always a 90 minutes game. So, it is enough for us to meet Senegal in the final and they are not having their best days and might have a better team and we will still win the cup. That is the beautiful thing about the Nations Cup.“
