AFCON AFCON 2025Q : Mauritania coach Amir Abdou ready to challenge Egypt in Group C

Mauritania head coach Amir Abdou says his team is ready to challenge Egypt and the other Group C members for 2025 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Mourabitounes played the last three Africa Cup of Nations in 2019 in Egypt, 2021 in Cameroon and in 2024 in Côte d’Ivoire.

And their head coach Amir Abdou who extended his contract to 2026 is aiming to qualify for the upcoming AFCON in Morocco.

“Quite a complicated draw. Egypt will be the big contender for qualification. They have a good track record that speaks volumes. Seven times African champions – that’s no small thing”, Abdou told CAF official website.

“We also have Cape Verde who eliminated us during the last AFCON. This team is made up of many quality players. We have Botswana, they are having a good qualifying campaign for the World Cup.”

“We have a pretty strong group. It’s up to us to believe in ourselves. We will do everything we can to achieve our fourth participation in the AFCON.”
