24 countries will compete in the 2019 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations to be played in Egypt from June 21st to July 19th.
And for Hoffenheim defender Kasim Nuhu Adams, there are two teams that are favorites to win.
“Since I’m Ghanaian, I obviously want Ghana to win [the Cup] but if I had to pick any other team, I’ll choose Senegal because they have so many good players and young guys who are playing in Europe,” he was quoted by Goal.
“Their impact in European leagues is very high and they play in big clubs as well. So, apart from Ghana, I’ll choose Senegal.”
“Morocco is also one country that can cause an upset,” he added.
“Cote D’Ivoire have very big names in Europe but they have struggled to make it.”
“As a team, I choose Senegal because we all saw them in 2018. They were fantastic and made it to the World Cup but were not able to make it to the next round,” he continued.
“But for me, they played really well and were organized as well.”
Senegal will take part in Group C, together with Algeria, Kenya, and Tanzania. Meanwhile, Ghana plays on Group F with Cameroon, Benin, and Guinea-Bissau.
