Burhan Tia, Sudan’s manager, believes that his team will fight for their chances in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon and will try to advance to the knockout stages of the competition.
Sudan are having a tough mission after being placed in Group D alongside Egypt, Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau.
“There is nothing impossible in football. The group might be strong, but with good preparations and concentration we will be able to make it to the knockout stage,” Tia told CAF website.
Sudan is one of the nations that have lifted the trophy when they celebrated the title at home in 1970.
Since their successful campaign in 1970, they only reached the knockout stages of the competition in one occasion in 2012.
Tia added “Our team is young, and we are building for the future. The spirit, ambition and motivation will be our strong weapons in the tournament.”
Sudan will start their journey in the competition against Guinea-Bissau and they hope for a strong start in the competition before facing the group giants, Egypt and Nigeria.
