AFCON: Super Eagles Lose 2-0 to Guinea In Friendly Match

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have lost 2-0 to the Syli National of Guinea in a friendly match played at the Bani Yas Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Monday.

The Jose Peseiro led-side who started the game without their star striker Victor Osimhen and first-choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho went behind as early as the 14th minute.

Simon Moses then got a chance via the penalty spot to level the game for the Super Eagles in the 20th minute but was denied by the Guinea goalkeeper.

In the 64th minute, the Guineans grabbed a second to double their lead.

Peseiro made multiple changes to the team with Calvin Bassey replacing Kenneth Omeruo, Alex Iwobi replacing Raphael Onyedika and Frank Onyeka coming in for Chidozie Awaziem.

Three more changes were made in the 83rd minute as captain Ahmed Musa replaced Samuel Chukwueze, Joe Aribo took the place of Alhassan Yusuf and Ademola Lookman came in for Moses Simon.

The changes, however, could not do much as Guinea held on to their lead to take a confidence-boosting win to AFCON in what was their last preparatory match for the competition.

The Super Eagles are expected to fly in to Lagos on Tuesday as they prepare to hit Cote D’Ivoire where the AFCON will be taking place.
