AFCON 2023:Okocha names countries that can win trophy

 


Former Nigeria midfielder Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has named the teams that could go all the way to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Speaking with SportingLife, Okocha was asked what he thinks of holders Senegal or Morocco, who were semi-finalist at the last World Cup.

The former PSG and Bolton Wanderers star replied: “Without a doubt, we have a lot of teams that we can say have what it takes to win.

‘As you said, Senegal—I was at their game yesterday, they gave a good performance.

“Morocco, of course, we know they were impressive at the World Cup and we expect them to do well.

‘But at the same time, when you look at teams like Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Angola, you can’t neglect them, they showed how difficult the AFCON has become.

“You can no longer consider a team as underdogs. Of course, there is also the organising country, Cote d’Ivoire.”
