Angola coach, Pedro Gonçalves has picked Nigeria and Ivory Coast as the two favourite teams to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
Gonçalves spoke ahead of Angola’s AFCON quarter-final clash with Nigeria at the Stade Félix Houphouët Boigny in Abidjan on Friday.
“We have a difficult task ahead of us against Nigeria in the African Nations quarter-finals,” Gonçalves said on Al-Hayat channel, via Filgoal.
“Peseiro is a great coach and his results with them are good.”
He added, “Egypt, Morocco, Senegal, and Algeria were initially nominated to win the title, but they all bid farewell to the tournament.
“Now I believe that Côte d’Ivoire and Nigeria have the greatest chances of holding the title.”
