AFTER Sunday’s 2-1 win over Ivory Coast in the Senior Challenge Cup, Amavubi Stars head coach Sellas Tetteh took some time off to comment on Sunday’s draws for the 2011 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN).
Amavubi are drawn in Group D alongside Tunisia, Angola and Senegal which according to Tetteh is a balanced group.
“We have to aim for the best. We are drawn against very good sides but we can still do well and by that, I mean get past the group stages,” the Ghanaian said.
Hosts Sudan, Gabon, Uganda and Algeria make up Group A; Ghana, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Niger are in Group B while Group C pits holders DRC against Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Mali.
The 16-nation tournament scheduled to run from February 4-25, is reserved for footballers playing in their domestic leagues.
Rwanda qualified after edging second round opponents Tanzania on goal aggregates (1-0) and will open their CHAN campaign on February 7 against Senegal.
DRC won the inaugural event which was held last year in Ivory Coast.
