Guinea coach Hamidou Camara has explained that his side deserved their 2-1 win over Guinea-Bissau in the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations.

Goals from Sekou Ketia and Abdoulaye Camara saw Syli Nationale come from behind to beat the Djurtus in a last 16 match at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday.

“We worked hard and we won the game. We deserved to win the game,” said Camara after the match.

“We are looking forward to the rest of the tournament, but are taking it one game at a time and [we will] give our best performances.

“We will only get better from here on out. I was happy with my players’ performance against Guinea-Bissau.”

Much of the credit for Guinea’s victory is owed to Ibrahima Aminata Conde, who put in a man of the match performance to see his team prevail.

“I am very happy to win the man of the match award. I played my heart out and because it’s very important to play this game and win the match,” said Conde.

“I will continue to play my heart out and hope to win some more awards in subsequent matches.”
