Teams: Tatung FC, FC United, South China, Milan, Man Utd
Group A: Tunisia, Congo DR, Guinea, Libya
Clearly Tunisia (w/ Änis Ben-Hatira) is the favorite. Guinea (w/ Kévin Constant) could be a challenge.
B: Algeria, Nigeria, Cameroon, Zambia
This is madness... Anybody's game, with Algeria (w/ Riyad Mahrez), Nigeria (w/ John Obi Mikel) and Cameroon (w/ Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting) possibly outperform Zambia (w/ Emmanuel Mayuka).
C: Ivory Coast, Mali, Morocco, Gabon
Ivory Coast (w/ Wilfried Bony) will qualify. Gabon (w/ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang) could be a potential disruption.
D: Senegal, Cape Verde, South Africa, Burkina Faso
Senegal (w/ Sadio Mané) will qualify. South Africa is still on regeneration phase.
E: Ghana, Egypt, Congo, Uganda
Ghana (w/ André Ayew) will qualify. Egypt is still on regeneration phase.
In the end, I support new teams to qualify for Russia 2018, not the normal candidates.
Maybe Guinea, Zambia, Gabon, Burkina Faso and Congo would be great for a change.
Imagine Aubameyang and Mayuka at their peak performance wreaking havoc in Russia.
