Guinea

Known by the nickname ‘National Elephants’, Guinea will be making their second appearance at the WAFU Nations Cup.

They debuted in the 2010 edition in Nigeria, where they missed out on reaching the semifinals after finishing third in a group which featured the hosts, Senegal and Benin.

This year Guinea will battle Guinea-Bissau in the opening knockout round and look to advance into the group stage alongside the region’s heavyweights.

Listed 66th on FIFA’s official world rankings, the National Elephants will be confident of overcoming their neighbours in the first stage of the 2017 WAFU Nations Cup after they crushed Guinea-Bissau 10-1 on aggregate in a recent 2018 African Nations Championship qualifying tie, and followed it up with tough matches against Senegal’s Teranga Lions.
