Nakamba Named Among Players To Watch At AFCON

Zimbabwe International midfielder, Marvelous Nakamba has been named as one of the seven must watch players at the AFCON tournament which kickoffs tonight in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Nakamba, who plies his trade at Club Brugge in Belgium, will be one of Zimbabwe’s critical players as his strength and experience will be handy if the Warriors are to do well in this tournament.

Below are the seven players to watch at AFCON, according

Marvellous Nakamba

Zimbabwe

While he easily has the best name out of our seven picks, Marvelous Nakamba has often lived up to the adjective for Zimbabwe and Club Brugge.

The 25-year-old has built up a reputation for being a hard worker and bullish in the centre of the park while his performances for his club in the Jupiler Pro League have attracted interest from Newcastle, Watford and Premier League returnees Aston Villa.

More impressively in the Champions League, Nakamba helped contain the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Monaco and Atletico Madrid as the Belgian side kept three clean sheets while conceding just four goals in five games.

Let’s hope he stays true to his moniker over the next month
