Ismaïla Sarr | SENEGAL | MID | 7.5M | Owned by 5%
One of the best teams playing against Tanzania… You have to pick someone and Sarr is good, relatively cheap and only 5% have him.
Issiaga Sylla | GUINEA | DEF | 5.0M | Owned by 1%
A cheap full back that has good chances of a clean-sheet (against Madagascar) and maybe get an assist…
Follow Luís on Twitter.
Alex Iwobi | NIGERIA | MID | 9.0M | Owned by 13%
I see him as the go-to guy to take Nigeria to a great result facing Burundi.
Cédric Bakambu | CONGO DR | ATT | 7.0M | Owned by 7%
He’ll be scoring goals to take Congo DR over Uganda’s giant Onyango.
Christian Bassogog | CAMEROON | MID | 7.0M | Owned by 2%
He scored five goals and made two assists in this season and he was the best player of the last AFCON, in 2017.
Odion Ighalo | NIGERIA | ATT | 11.0M | Owned by 7%
He has seven goals in the season with his team and five goals with Nigeria. Top scorer of the qualifying stage.
Follow José on Twitter.
Mahmoud Alaa | EGYPT | DEF | 5.0M | Owned by 6%
Great first matchup, should start alongside Hegazi. He’s one of the cheaper options to get someone from Egypt’s back four.
Arnaud Djoum | CAMEROON | MID | 5.0M | Owned by 0%
This veteran midfielder is supposed to pull the strings for the Les Lions Indomptables offensive play. An average season at Hearts should’ve kept him fresh for the AFCON.
Follow André on Twitter.
Youssef Msakni | TUNISIA | MID | 5.5M | Owned by 11%
After missing the last World Cup, Msakni will wreak havoc in the opposition teams, being a winger with lots of goals.
Youssef En-Nesyri | MOROCCO | ATT | 8.5M | Owned by 5%
He had a great season in La Liga and he’ll be the reference in Morocco’s attack, in a squad full of talented providers.
Dean Ammi from DZ Football
Arthur Masuaku | CONGO DR | DEF | 5.0M | Owned by 6%
He scored in the warm-up games, which is big points as a defender, and he takes set pieces. He is great going forward, he’s cheap and faces Uganda.
Wilfried Bony | IVORY COAST | ATT | 6.0M | Owned by 6%
He looked very sharp in the warm-up games with multiple goals.
Marwan Ahmed from KingFut
Cédric Amissi | BURUNDI | MID | 6.0M | Owned by 0%
He’s had a monster season in Saudi Arabia, winning the league, and has scored in each of his last four games for Burundi!
Aymen Ben Mohamed | TUNISIA | DEF | 4.5M | Owned by 7%
Nailed starter for Tunisia and I expect him to get a clean-sheets.
