Check out “Super Eagles, Côte d’Ivoire Title Contenders—Oliseh.” Sunday Oliseh, a former Nigerian international, has predicted that the Super Eagles and Côte d’Ivoire will contend for the trophy at this year’s AFCON.

After a 1-1 draw, Oliseh made this statement when struggling Côte d’Ivoire defeated Senegal 5-4 on penalties. The Ivorians entered the match against Senegal after a disappointing group stage showing in which they lost to Equatorial Guinea 4-0.

The victory of Morocco over Zambia in their last group match allowed the Elephants to advance to the round of 16. Following the victory over Senegal, Oliseh said on his X: “Cote D’ivoire and Naija are now, in my opinion, possible title contenders! The coach changed to a local one four days ago!

“They begged Morocco to defeat Zambia five days ago in order for them to advance. Tonight, on Monday, they will remove Senegal, their title favorite. Football is an incredible, wild ride.

The Ivorians will return to action in the quarterfinals on Saturday against an opponent who will be revealed later this year. On Friday, January 2, the Eagles will play Angola at Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan.

January contributions

Nottingham Forest is interested in selling midfielder Orel Mangala.Forest is evaluating Lyon’s £30 million offer. Accepting the money would ease Forest’s concerns about Premier League profit and sustainability sanctions.

Mangala, who came from Stuttgart and joined Forest in the summer of 2022 for a meager price of £10.5 million, has been a reliable starter up until this point in the season.

His exit would also free up cash so Nuno Espirito Santo could bolster his team in the last 72 hours of the transfer market, putting Gio Reyna, a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund, and Maxwell Cornet of West Ham on his wish list.

Forest is also making a significant attempt to acquire Sam Johnstone, the England goalkeeper, following the fact that Crystal Palace declined their initial request for a loan at the beginning of the season.

And if the pricing is reasonable

Leicester have slapped a £40 million price tag on Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, which is likely to end Brighton’s pursuit of the midfielder.

As allsportspredictions reported on Friday, Brighton held talks with the Foxes last week in the hope of striking a deal, but Leicester’s valuation for the 25-year-old is much higher than the Seagulls anticipated.

Despite interest from Brentford, Fulham, and Everton, Dewsbury-Hall remains loyal to his hometown club, who are currently leading the championship with a seven-point lead. His contract at the King Power Stadium runs until 2027.
