CAF U23: NO EASY GROUP, SAYS SOUTH AFRICAN COACH, PITCHED AGAINST NIGERIA

For aspiring African teams to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics’ football event, the road passes through Egypt.

The eight contending teams have already been drawn into two as Nigeria and South Africa – football rivals are again drawn together in Group B.

The other two teams in the group are Cote d’Ivoire and Zambia. According to thenff.com, the South African coach, David Notone, sees no difference in the composition of both Groups A and B.

“The truth is that whatever group you fall into would always be tough. We have eight very strong teams here and any team could have fallen anywhere, except Egypt and Nigeria that headed the groups.

“I call Group B a pool of derbies, with two West African teams and two Southern African teams. Group A is the pool of death, no doubt about it. It is going to be fight-to-finish in both groups.”
