Ahmed “Mido” Hossam says his country and 2019 Afcon hosts Egypt will win
the championship come July 19.

The former Egypt international revealed this to BBC Sport after the hosts were drawn in group A that has two-time African champions DR Congo, 1978 finalists Uganda and Zimbabwe.

“Egypt are
favourites to win the title,” the former striker said. “I don’t say that
because I’m Egyptian but really Egypt have a very good team,” said Mido.

Add to that the fans will support the team very well so I’m optimistic that we will do it.

The former Tottenham Hotspur forward, however, believes the Atlas Lions of Morocco will compete tightly with his home nation under perennial winner Herve Renard.

“I respect teams
like Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal but from what I can see; Morocco is the only
team can be a stumbling block for Egypt.

Mido also supports
the expansion of the tournament that will lots of teams debuting and others
return after a long absence.

“That’s not bad;
it gives many countries in Africa the chance to have the honour of playing in
this big event.”

The 2019 Africa Cup
of Nations will take place in Egypt from 21 June to 19 July.
