Sudan make a return to the African Nations Championship (CHAN) after missing the last edition in Cameroon and they will be keen to do better than their pair of third place finishes in the 2011 and 2018.

The 1970 Africa Cup of Nations winners qualified for the seventh edition of the tournament from the CECAFA Zone after thrashing Djibouti 7-3 on aggregate and will be keen to make a huge imprint when they land in Algeria.

Sudan have been drawn in a tough Group C and will take on Morocco, Madagascar and Ghana, and will play their matches at the Mohamed Hamlaoui Stadium in Constantine.

The experienced Bruhan Tia was appointed as coach last year, just before the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, taking over from Hubert Velud. At the AFCON, his first assignment with the Falcons Of Jeddiane,ended up with a haul of one point from a 0-0 draw with Guinea Bissau.

He lost the other two to finish third in Group D.

He went on to coach the likes of Al Ahli, Al-Merreikh Al-Thagher, Hay Al-Arab, Alamal Atbara, Kadougli-based club Al-Hilal, Al-Merreikh Al-Fasher, Al-Hilal Al-Fasher, Al Neel, Al-Merrikh and Al-Tuti.

The two biggest clubs, Al Merrikh and Al Hilal are expected to make up the most of the squad for the team in Algeria, It is expected to be a similar squad from their AFCON team, with most of the first team players plying their trade locally.

Mohamed Abdelrahman, one of the longest serving players in the squad, will be one of the players to watch out for Sudan. The skipper, who plays his club football with giants Al Hilal is expected to lead the forward line for the Sudanese in Algeria.
