Secretary of WAFU, Aka Malan, said the organisers are ready to stage a glamorous competition, adding that the regional competition has come to stay. He, however, noted that a surprise team may win this year’s edition.


“There are no minnows in African football any more, so we are expecting shocks in this tournament. There is no doubt that the competition will be highly competitive,” he said.
