I'm looking forward to the new challenge and hope I can use all of my football knowledge and experience to help the team achieve even more success in the future."

 

4 Water Breaks Required

The players' union Fifpro has asked for the AFCON matches to have 4 drinks breaks due to the heat in Egypt where the matches will be played. The tournament is planned to have 2 drink breaks, 1 each half, in line with FIFA regulations. Fifpro said: "The health and safety of the players must come first. Any play in temperatures over 34C would mean there is an extremely high risk of thermal injury." Temperatures are expected to reach 40c.
