AFCON 2023: Mokwena reveals favourite country to win trophy

Head coach of Mamelodi Sundowns, Rulani Mokwena, has named Nigeria among the favourites to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

According to Mokwena, the Super Eagles have several top players, adding that they are never pushovers in the competition.

He also named Morocco, Egypt, Ghana and Senegal as other teams that can compete for the AFCON trophy.

“Nigeria will always be favourites because they have several top players and are never pushovers when it comes to the tournament,” Mokwena told Sundowns’ website.

According to him: “Morocco is another team I believe will do well because they have a great coach, a great squad and we saw their exploits at the last World Cup. Egypt can also be considered a big threat in the competition, as they have the pedigree and know-how to win the title. I also tip Ghana and Senegal to be strong contenders and I think Ivory Coast will also make it to the last 8.”
