Comoros national team head coach Amir Abdou maintains that his side did not have luck in the 2022 AFCON draw.
The Islanders who are making their first appearance at the AFCON have been drawn alongside Ghana, Morocco as well as Gabon in Group C and their coach insists it is not favorable for them.
“We knew we were in Hat 4, and then you had to expect a tough draw. After all the teams that are present at this competition, they are part of the best African teams.” Abdou stated after the draw
“It is true that the draw is not lenient for us, even though we have already met Morocco, Gabon and Ghana in recent years. It went pretty well with us. But here it will be on neutral ground, it is up to us to be efficient and to be vigilant in all areas. Afterwards, it’s a great pleasure to be at this competition, and we will do everything to be up to the event,” He added.
Comoros defy all odds and drew with an African giant like Egypt in the qualifiers and they have gradually built a winsome side.
