Group C is certainly one of the most difficult pools in the 2020 CHAN. It is comprised of current cup holders, Morocco, old timers Uganda, Rwanda and new comers Togo.
The wish of each of the teams is to progress to the next stage of the competition after the first round.
From a panoramic view, the Atlas lions are tipped favourites having won the tournament in 2018 at home. Added to their 4 times participation, the north Africans were once quarter finalists in 2014.
geting to the group’s summit Morocco will need to break several walls including that of Rwanda.
The Amavoubi can so far boost of 4 qualification tickets. Their best performance ever dates back to 2014 when they were knocked out at the quarter final stage on home ground.
Uganda is undoubtedly the oldest in the house. Their expedition to Cameroon this year is the 5th in a row.
But Surprisingly the Cranes have never gone passed the group stage , in previous editions.
While the east Africans will be hoping on experience to create an impact, the sparrowhawks of Togo will be making their debut in the tournament.
Though regarded as underdogs, the west Africans may just turn out being, the astonishing elements.
Matches of this group will unfold in the inner bowl of the Douala reunification stadium.
CHAN 2020: who is who in Group D
From all indications, Zambia are the big weights in Group D.
The chipolopolo will be making their 4th appearance in the Africa nations championship in Cameroon.
The selection’s greatest record was in 2009,in Côte d’ivore when they finished 3rd in the tournament’s maiden edition .
Since then the former KK 11 haven’t got the chance to cross the group stages.
A story line, almost identical to that of Guinea.
After taking part in the 2 previous CHAN competitions , the Syli nationale had the opportunity to salvage a 4th spot in 2016 in Rwanda.
In their third attempt this year, they will obviously want to do better. But that will require enough strength to conquer 2018 quarter finalists Namibia.
Haven’t featured once in the jamboree, the brave warriors stood their grounds among power houses in Morocco 2 years ago. They are poised to go beyond this time around.
Last but not the least in the pool, is Tanzania. The Taifa stars will be making their come back to the CHAN eleven years after. They were eliminated in the first round in 2009 during their first ever participation.
Although considered no names in the group , Tanzania may just be the superlative revelation in Limbe during the soccer fiesta.
