I'd prefer Ivory Coast's team, more balanced I'd say but Senegal higher stars. I'd favour Ivory Coast's offense and midfield, with Senegal a better keeper and central defense.I think it's Senegal. Edouard Mendy, Koulibaly, Diallo (PSG),Bouna Sarr (Bayern), Gueye, Kouyate, Mane, Ismaila Sarr.
There's a reason they're one of the favourites.
Yeah i remember him being really highly rated when he came through at Charlton and was linked with teams like Benfica at one point. Good to hear he's still doing well at though, as a Rangers fan are you not worried you'll lose him soon?Aribo for Nigeria could shine. He's on fire this season for Rangers.
Aye, it's on the cards at some point over the next 6-18 months. He would be a big loss, but the only viable model of business for clubs like ours is to pluck potential stars, develop and expose them to European football, and then sell them on for 10m+ profit after a few years.Yeah i remember him being really highly rated when he came through at Charlton and was linked with teams like Benfica at one point.

Starters are:Trying to generate my own excitement for this tournament as there isn't much in the UK media and I'll be able to have a lot of games on in the background whilst WFH...
Loved some of the AFCONs around the late 00s but haven't paid enough attention to the last few.
Today's games are (UK time):
13:00 - Senegal vs Zimbabwe
16:00 - Guinea vs Malawi
16:00 - Morocco vs Ghana
19:00 - Comoros vs Gabon
Put a treble on Senegal, Guinea + Gabon today based mostly on their FIFA ranks, plus a punt on Ghana to win vs Morocco as the odds seem surprisingly low on them even if they aren't in great form, as they still have some quality (and always had a soft spot for them since WC 2010, and Andre Ayew).
Also lumped on Algeria to win the thing at 9/2 to give me a nation to support overall. Interested to see their actual 1st choice lineup...looks like they have 2 forwards who are scoring freely at international level (even if one is Slimani) and then 5 quality attacking mids in Mahrez + Benhrama + Brahimi + Feghouli + Balaili. Can they get away with a 2-1-7 formation against the lesser nations...
