The seventh edition of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) for local footballers, which is being held in Algeria, is “the best of all the previous editions”, said Tuesday in Oran the president of the African Football Confederation (CAF), Patrice Motsepe.
“This edition is, could not be better, by far the best CHAN event since the launch of this competition. I have already had positive feedback on the start of the event”, declared the boss of CAF on his arrival in the capital of the West of the country to attend the last two meetings of the group stage.
“Everything has been perfect since the start of this competition. The organization is good, and the sports facilities are of high quality, which makes me proud. Algeria has a glorious footballing past. Algerians should also be proud of their country, just like all African countries,” he added.
The South African traveled to the western capital of the country for the first time since the start of CHAN, after having already toured the other stadiums hosting the event, namely, Nelson-Mandela of Baraki (Algiers), May 19 of Annaba and Chahid Hamlaoui (Constantine), informs the Algerian press agency.
The Miloud-Hadedi stadium is hosting the last two matches of pools D and E, respectively pitting Mauritania against Mali (1-0) and Niger against Cameroon (1-0, match in progress).
