. all right chris harrington is here to talk all things after call on hey chris good to have you here all right so the 1st game to play with how do you think that's going to go. to do to you i think it will be less like victory for egypt you mentioned already that the record champions there are hosting extra motivation i mean they have their talents man their masonic figure in most you know and they didn't lose any of the qualifying matches a very good professional league as well now zimbabwe you know in their group they've done well against the other teams uganda n d r congo but i do think they'll have to punch above their weight we did have a chance to catch up with the warriors head coach and this is what he had to say about the big competition hey joe. i thing we are very experienced players you know what tim. is for the atmosphere. i think we played on of the semi-pros fear in geography and in congo brazzaville they're quite used to this kind of
8:35 pm
fighting this year and i just will be there when i. play them off the ball and produce a reasonable good result for the nation ok so we know were installed for some good football here i think everybody agrees on that and i just wonder if you have all of these legends like mossad on the continent who go on to play in european he has an advantage to the teams why is it that when african teams are playing in the world cup for example we somehow to match up together well i think it really comes down to money invested in infrastructure you could look at germany you know for example they've invested over a 1000000000 euros in their youth infrastructure you know big countries the most populated country nigeria as a comparison because i did spend time there their infrastructure is basically bare and you know it runs dry and their national team is basically composed of players that are talented enough to play abroad in hone their skills and so forth not a lot of money is put forward in to you know the infrastructure and specifically
8:36 pm
the domestic league with good nigeria i caught up with a super eagle legend j.j. a coach and he touched on the issues that basically are keeping you know the football situation a step behind in the country. when it comes to the local big thinkers they have a long way to go to be cursed. and one of the issues is that most of the clovers belongs to government right you know so people running to clubs are not really on the shows and now you know so they rely on the board that they get every year from the government a lot of people in nigeria envying you right now for getting that grab a kevin is let's talk about the action that will be off the pitch in this tournament i mean at the end of the day afghan is taking place in a country that people are warning its governmental authorities of violating human rights what are we likely to see off the pitch this time well i think off the pitch a lot of people will take this opportunity to shine the light on certain issues
8:37 pm
that otherwise wouldn't get the attention i mean you know and one thing that's come out in criticizing what has been happening recently in egypt and it's the internationalist criticize you know the government for arresting several football fans associated associated them with terror organizations and so forth but they're really charged with the crime you know so i'm thinking that uses a deterrent but i'm sure people will you know try to hurdle over that and still try to get their voices heard in terms of the equal rights issues that exist in the country right right ok chris so it's a back to the tournament itself we know what are the favorites and i'm just wondering who you've got your money on you know this is one of the beautiful things about the f.a. cup of nations you know several teams competing 24 teams big biggest and it's ever been have won it you know it comes down to obviously of sets in the lion's share i mean i have 4 teams that i'll go with ok morocco you know egypt sinegal in the team that was featured in the report nigeria but upsets can happen but i'll wait until you know chip some of the fat from really pick the winner ok and some always not on
