Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has admitted that all four teams left in the Africa Cup of Nations, are favourites to win the trophy.

Nigeria take on Algeria in the second semi-final on Sunday, for a place in the final next Friday.

Rohr’s men are widely perceived to be odds-on favourites having silenced Bafana Bafana, who knocked out hosts Egypt.

The German, however, does not feel his side should be considered the favourites against Djamel Belmadi’s side, who finished as group winners.

“When you beat the favourites, you are also one of the favourites. That was my opinion and it is still my opinion.

“Now we have beaten one of the favourites, but we have to play a team which everybody here believes were the best in the group stage.

“So they are still favourites while we are the second favourites.

“The four teams remaining are the best teams of the tournament Senegal are number one in Africa, Tunisia are number two and we are number three. We are all here and Algeria is playing so well.

“All is open but it’s reflecting that there are two countries from North Africa and two countries from West Africa,” Rohr told reporters on Saturday.
