Guinea and Gambia will square off at the Stade de Yamoussoukro stadium on January 19. This game is part of Group C of the Africa Cup of Nations.
Senegal, the current Africa Cup of Nations champions, soundly defeated Gambia in their Group C match on January 15, but they may recover with a win over Guinea. They were unable to contain a furious Senegal, but it is not a dishonor to lose to the African squad that is the strongest to win the championship twice in a row. In addition, Gambia has a strong historical record against Guinea, having drawn 2 of their 3 encounters and won 2 of them. Due to a contentious pre-tournament build-up, Gambia was already up against it; shortly before halfway, Ebou Adams was sent off. They mounted valiant fights, but in the end they were defeated by the greater firepower of Senegal.
Despite having a disappointing start to their Africa Cup of Nations campaign, 10-man Guinea was able to hold a tie against Cameroon. Guinea dominated the early pace and received their reward inside ten minutes when, following a scuffle in the Cameroon area, Bayo showed composure and slotted past Fabrice Ondoa, the Indomitable Lions’ stand-in goalkeeper, in place of Andre Onana. The goalie for Manchester United, who participated in Sunday’s 2-2 tie between his team and Tottenham, arrived late for work. Cameroon struggled for much of the game, unable to create many opportunities, and were also without important striker Vincent Aboubakar due to injury. As the conclusion of regulation time drew near, Kone saved Guinea by parrying Karl Toko Ekambi’s close-range attempt and then grabbing the ball. Serhou Guirassy, who has scored 17 goals for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga this campaign, was ruled out due to a knee injury, which dealt a severe blow to Guinea prior to the game.
