Former Nigerian midfielder, Emmanuel Amuneke has revealed that it would be difficult to predict the winner of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The 1994 AFCON winner made this known in an interview with CAFonline, where he listed seven teams that are capable of winning the tournament.

Amongst those he listed are Cameroon, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.

He, however, admitted that defending champions Algeria are hot favourites to defend their title.

“Algeria is the reigning champions, and they are the favourites. Senegal is a very strong team. So are the hosts Cameroon, Egypt, Nigeria, Morocco and Tunisia.

“It will be very difficult to predict who will win the title.

“There are big changes in African football, players with a global dimension, it is promising.

“In Europe today, African footballers play the leading roles in their clubs and evolve in the top clubs in the world,” Amuneke told CAFOnline.
