Former Nigeria international, Emmanuel Amuneke has predicted that Algeria has what it takes to retain the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Amuneke feels the standard of football on the continent has improved since the last edition in Egypt.
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.
