CHAN 2022 (Gr. E): The good the bad and the urgly

CHAN 2022 (Gr. E): The good the bad and the ugly

The 7th edition of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) will take place from January 13 to February 4, 2023 in Algeria. And in Group E, everything remains possible even if Cameroon starts with a slight advantage over its competitors, Congo-Brazzaville and Niger.

Group E has only three teams just like group D in this CHAN 2022 (January 13-February 4). Therefore, only one ticket will be up for grabs between Cameroon, Congo-Brazzaville and Niger. If we rely simply on the pedigree, the Indomitable Lions start with the favors of the prognosis. However, a victory is not decreed. It is acquired on the field.

Cameroon, the good

More experienced in this competition, Cameroon will honor its sixth participation in this CHAN 2022 which will be the seventh edition. The Indomitable Lions can then count on a talented group that will undoubtedly be led by New Star of Douala's Junior Kemajou. The latter should replace the best striker of the local championship, Patient Wassou, not selected by Alioum Saidou. Although Cameroon is familiar with the CHAN, it has not yet reached the podium or won a medal. Its best position, remains a fourth place. It was in 2020 on its land.

Congo, the bad

Congo Brazzaville is not the most expected selection at the CHAN 2022. The local Red Devils will certainly play their chances in this competition and the appetite will come with eating. The Congolese will then know how far they could go in this CHAN 2022. The Congo took advantage of its training in Tunisia to play friendly matches including a victory against Madagascar (1-0) and a draw against Senegal (0-0). Two results that will certainly boost the confidence of the Red Devils. Congo played for the first time the CHAN in 2014, in South Africa. Before returning in 2018. And to chain the next two editions.

Niger,the ugly
With four participations, Niger will also play as an outsider in this CHAN 2022. The Mena is often eliminated in the first round. However, Niger managed to make a good campaign in 2011, playing the quarterfinals though lost to Sudan on penalties (1-1, 4 pen 3).
