CHAN 2023: Time for Algeria | AfricanewsThe 7th African Nations Championship (CHAN) begins tonight in Algeria with an opening match between the Local Fennecs and their neighbours Libya. An opening match will take place in the brand-new Nelson Mandela stadium in Algiers. There were a lot of people on Thursday evening in the Algerian capital to inaugurate the Nelson Mandela stadium, named after the continental icon. CAF President Patrice Motsepe was particularly moved to honour his late compatriot.
In addition to playing at home, she remains on a prestigious victory during the first Arab Cup organized by FIFA at the end of 2021 in Qatar with a team very close to the one that will be aligned for this CHAN. The Fennecs will have to mark the occasion this evening against Libya led by the Frenchman Corentin Martins. The Knights of the Mediterranean regularly shine at CHAN, which they won in 2014. Ethiopia and Mozambique, absent from the last editions, should not worry the two North African teams. The "group of death" of this CHAN is undoubtedly group B, with three formations among the most competitive on the continent. Twice titled in the past, the Congolese Leopards leave with a slight lead in the forecasts but will have to be wary of the Ivorians and the Senegalese.
