Morocco has not win the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in more than four decades, last taking home the trophy in 1976, but after advancing as far as the tournament quarterfinals last year, the world’s 47th-ranked team, per FIFA.com, may have its best chance in years. Coach Herve Renard, who guided the Atlas Lions to the quarterfinals, is the only coach to win AFCON with two different countries, and is looking to make it a third — amidst speculation that he is on the verge of departing Morocco for yet another African nation. But Renard has attempted to put speculation about his future on hold as his team opens their 2019 tournament against the lightly regarded Namibia, in a match that will live stream from Cairo.

While Namibia has no real shot at taking the AFCON title, or even getting out of Group D, they will be happy with an upset of Morocco that stops a six-game AFCON losing streak. According to BeIn Sports, only Mozambique (12) and Benin (9) are currency mired in longer losing streaks, in tournament games.
But Namibia is coming off of a 3-0 win over the Seychelles Islands in the Brave Warriors most recent match, on May 30, per Soccerway.
Renard previously won the AFCON championship with Zambia in 2012, and Ivory Coast in 2015, per Sports Keeda.
