Ezzaki Badou, head coach of Niger anticipates an easy group after being paired with Ghana, Angola and Sudan in Group F ahead of the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.


Reacting to the draw, the 65-year-old Moroccan who was appointed to lead the Ménas eight months ago maintained that they have every chance to qualify, describing the group as affordable.

"We are in an affordable group," he told "We have every chance of qualifying.

"For me, Ghana is a football country with a selection of great professionals. But it is not the team of 5 or 6 years ago.

"Even at home, they can lose. Angola showed a good face during the last CAN and beautiful football, modern, fast football. It is a selection that has shaken up the big teams in Côte d'Ivoire. I know Sudan very well.

"They are first in their qualifying group for the World Cup. They will be dangerous, but we know our strengths and we know that we can go far," he added.

Niger will kick start their qualifying campaign in September 2024 with matches against Sudan (September 2, 2024) and Ghana on September 10, 2024.
