Against Gabon, which organizes the competition and a team of novices at this level Niger, Tunisia and Morocco are well positioned to play leading roles in group C. Experience and talent should allow the two leading countries of the Maghreb football field to realize their ambitions of winning.

If the meeting between Gabon and Niger opens the show January 23 in group C, all eyes will be on the meeting in the evening between Tunisia and Morocco.

Logically the two favorite teams are the Maghreb scarecrow figure in a competition shorn of some big names in African football as Cameroon, Nigeria and Algeria, eliminated by … Morocco. “It’s a derby, a classic. It is a special meeting which is for both fans, the players, for the whole country,” confided the old glory of Moroccan football, Salaheddine Bassir of . Beyond the rivalry, but also the supremacy of the Arab football is at stake at the top of African football in the club competitions (win Esperance Tunis Wydad Casablanca e African Champions League, DSS Fez Club Africain in the Confederation Cup,) the two countries attacking football practice that leads to a legitimate aim for the top step of the podium.

An animation of fire attack

“Our goal is to play to win the CAN” admitted Eric Gerets. The man nicknamed the Lion of Rekem has imposed its culture of results to a group full of talent (Belhanda, Boussoufa, Kharja, Taarabt to name a few) and developed by experienced players (Chamakh, Hadji ).

A cocktail that has been proven in the playoffs and just waiting to explode in the competition. Opposite, Tunisia led by Sami Trabelsi is full of confidence. “We are pleased with the preparation before the NPC. Contrary, perhaps, other deadlines that are not well prepared … Here, it was a good preparation. I think we have a group that is very homogeneous, which is very supportive.

There is a good mind, a good spirit and I hope we will make it a reality in the field and during games as well, “assured the coach.

Winner of CHAN in full revolution a year ago, the Carthage Eagles also have a good effect. Between the colony of African champion title, Esperance Tunis and “Europeans”, Tunisia, second best behind Botswana in qualifying, hopes to “go with the NPC. Nothing is impossible” by the admission of playmaker Osama Darragi.

Rohr-curves, experience?

Two opponents “formidable” in the words of coach Gernot Rohr but faze the Gabon: “We start with the advantage of playing at home and have an obligation to be at the top level of motivation.” Co-hosts with Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, however, is down compared to the two North African giants. But with the support of an entire people behind it, the selection of Panthers secretly hopes a surprise attack while with his power (Mouloungui, Cousin, Aubameyang).

Good omen? The selection of the age of 23 won the C Class, beating Morocco. Niger, meanwhile, enters the competition with more modest ambitions. Qualified for the first time in its history the Mena, driven by Harouna Doula, 2011 African best coach, will not the weight of the pressure. Unexpected first qualifier of a group hard (South Africa, Sierra Leone and Egypt), the attacking team will eclipse Moussa Maazou jauntily chance. And with Rolland Courbis called in reinforcements, Niger now has more than one trick up his sleeve.
