Nigeria Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr gave a list of teams to win the 2019 African Cup of Nations trophy.
He named Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt but also Senegal as the favorite country to win the CAN 2019. In an interview on the website Girondins4ever, the German technician used the latest FIFA World Ranking as a tool measurement.
According to him, if Nigeria stays on a good world cup, it is not the best African nation. "When we look at the ranking of Africa and FIFA, we are not the first African country. There is Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria that may be favorite at home for the CAN. There is also Senegal in front of us. "
The former Girondin who took the reins of the Nigerian selection hopes to make results for the next continental rendezvous. "There are so many different things from the rest of Africa and the world that this adventure is worth living. In addition we had a little success with this qualification for the World Cup. We also managed to qualify for the next African Cup of Nations, which will start in June. It's good because we have a very young team that, I think, can still progress and give satisfaction. "
