Gabon 2017 Group B Preview

Group B:

ALGERIA : The Fennecs of Algeria will be lead by Coach George Leekens who took over in November and received a Resounding 3-1 thrashing few days later against Nigeria.
S.Feghouli was not selected because of lack of Game time at Club level while another Notable omission is Carl Medjani.
The New African Footballer of the Year Riyad Mahrez will Spearhead the attack and he will be expected to Combine well with Club mate Islam Slimani while Yassim Brahimi and Nabil Bentaleb can also cause problems.

TUNISIA : The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia will be hoping to replicate the 2004 winning Squad when they face fellow Northern Africans in Algeria, Zimbabwe and West Africa Giant in the Lions of Teranga .
Veteran defender,Abdennour is part of the players to watch alongside Premier league star in Wahbi Khazri who is famous with some deadly deliveries, Ahmed Akaichi whose three goals couldn't help them past the group stage two years ago and Super talented Youssef Msakni who scored the Best goal of South Africa 2013.

SENEGAL : The teranga lions of Senegal are parading Players that could be tagged the current Golden generation of African Football but in recent times since 2012,the players all failed to show up in various tournaments and it will be a total disgrace if a squad that have the likes of Cheikhou Kouyate,Idrissa Gana Gueye,Mohamed Diame,Mousa Konate,experienced Moussa Sow,Ismaila Sarr,Skillful Youngster Keita Blade Diao and Liverpool best player in Sadio Mane fail to deliver yet again.

ZIMBABWE : The Warriors of Zimbabwe are one of the minnows as Coach Callisto Pasuwa will be riding PSL Warhorses such as Willard Katsande,Kudakwashe Mahachi,Evans Rusike,Tendai Ndoro,Vastly experienced Knowledge Musona and Khama Billiat who helped Mamelodi Sundowns to Caf Champions league glory.

Conclusion : It is a very tough Group that will see Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez battle for Supremacy,We can't write off Billiat who was disappointed for not winning the best African based player award for his fantastic performances with Mamelodi Sundowns.
Senegal lost to Algeria courtesy of Goals by Riyad Mahrez and Nabil Bentaleb in 2015 and we can't predict the outcome of a North African Derby.
