Morocco fans happy to avoid Eagles
Football fans in Morocco are happy that they are not placed in the same group with Nigeria following the draw for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rabat on Friday.
The hosts are in Group A with Mauritania, Guinea and Sudan, while Nigeria will face Rwanda, Libya and Equatorial Guinea in Group C.
Abdellah Raissouni, a Moroccan journalist who is from the city of Tangier, where the home-based Super Eagles will play their first two group games against Rwanda and former champions Libya, revealed that supporters of the Atlas Lions are happy to avoid Nigeria who they believe are one of the favourites to win the competition.
CHAN will run in four Moroccan cities Casablanca, Marrakech, Tangier and Agadir from January 13 to February 4, 2018.
