AFCON 2021: Aside Ghana, Nyantakyi tips Mali, Senegal, Morocco and Algeria for trophy

Algeria beat Senegal 1-0 to win their second Africa Cup of Nations title in 2019

Kwesi Nyantakyi has tipped either Mali, Senegal, Morocco or reigning champions Algeria to win the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations aside from Ghana.

The former Ghana Football Association (GFA) believes any of these four countries can go all the way to win the trophy in Cameroon.

Algeria won the last edition and are many people’s favourite to defend the crown, while Senegal hope to better 2019’s record of finishing second. Morocco, who are in Ghana’s group, have a talented squad, the same as Mali.

“Mali has invested massively in the development of players at the grassroots level. GMG Academy for instance has been doing great work at this.

“This has positioned Mali as one of the favourites for the tournament. Senegal, Morocco, and Algeria are the countries who can excel at the tournament,” Nyantakyi told Captain Smart on Onua TV.

The tournament kicks off on Sunday, January 9 with the finals set for February 6, 2022.
