Morocco faces Namibia in a game from Group D of the African Cup of Nations
Morocco faces Namibia in a game from Group D of the African Cup of Nations. This match is going to be played at the Al Salam Stadium in the Egyptian capital Cairo. Let’s take a look in our vip soccer bets.
Alongside Ivory Coast, Morocco are the favourites of reaching the knockout phase of the competition. The other two teams in the group are Namibia and South Africa, so let’s see what they can offer.
Morocco have won the Cup of Nations only one time in their history. This happened in 1976, when they triumphed in Ethiopia. In 2004 they reached the final for a last time, while in 1980 they finished third. Two years ago the Atlas Lions also did well in the tournament, reaching the 1/4-finals.
At this moment Morocco are managed by the French tactician Herve Renard, who won the Cup of Nations with Zambia in 2012 and with Ivory Coast in 2015. If Renard manages to win the competition with a third different team, this would be an amazing achievement.
There are some well known names in Morocco’s team. We could mention Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech, Sassuolo’s Mehdi Bourabia, Galatasaray’s Younes Belhanda, Borussia Dortmund’s Achraf Hakimi and other. This team is really talented, there’s no doubt about that.
In the same time Namibia are participating at the Cup of Nations for a third time in their history. So far they have never passed the group stage. The team is managed by the domestic coach Ricardo Mannetti, who’s doing the job since 2015. The most well known names in the Namibian team are Blackburn Rovers’ Ryan Nyambe and Carl Zeiss Jena’s Manfred Starke. They are the only ones currently playing in Europe.
These are our vip soccer bets for the Cup of Nations clash between Morocco and Namibia. The Atlas Lions are the big favourites here.
