Gearing up for the semi-finals of the African Nations Championship CHAN 2020, Morocco’s lead trainer Hussein Ammouta Lhoussaine Ammouta is on the fact that Morocco will play a good game tomorrow against the Intermediate lions of Cameroon.
Coach Lhoussaine Ammouta reacting during a pre-match press conference in Limbe says the team will have to play a good game against host Cameroon coupled with a calm mindset.
“We promised a normal good game tomorrow against Cameroon. We assist each other as a team and this will help us for tomorrow’s game. Our mind set is okay ahead of tomorrow’s game.”

Quizzed on the quality of the game he accepts it will be a challenging one but facing tough opponents gives victory.
“We know that it will be a mental and physical challenge. It is by facing tough opposition that we can win the tournament. We came late today and hope our journey from Douala will not be a worry for us ahead of tomorrow pleading that CAF will put things in order ahead of the game. We felt more comfortable in Douala and felt that we did not want to move our team en-mass due to the organization.”
The Atlas lions of Morocco have had a good run in the competition so far. According to pundits the North African team has been favoured by CAF which he terms baseless arguements.
“I prefer to say that I will ignore baseless argument on being favoured by CAF.” Coach Ammouta Opined
Morocco hosted the fifth edition of the CHAN tournament in 2018 and emerged victorious. Comparing the two editions he says
“The two competition are different. In Morocco it was a different competition as it is here in Cameroon. With COVID-19 things has not been easy. I will admit that we have new players mixed with little experienced players. We are learning to play together. Offensively, I am confident in my team. It was not easy facing opponents as some came with the result to play out draws but we had to work hard to be able to win our opponents. While having fun here, we equally want to play good football.” Coach Ammouta
Morocco will face the Intermediate Lions of Cameroon Wednesday January 3, 2021 in the Limbe Omnisport Stadium for the semi-finals.
Morocco booked a ticket to the semi-finals knocking out the Chipolopolo’s of Zambia in a 3#1 fierce battle.
