The two favorites in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group B square off in a match that could secure the Nigeria Super Eagles their spot in the AFCON quarterfinals. But they must first take three points from the match against a team that one expert called a potential “banana peel” that could slip Nigeria up — a dangerous Guinea squad, Goal reports. Nigeria will also need to be careful not to be distracted as they continue to squabble with the Nigeria Football Federation over what the players say are unpaid bonuses and other cash payments promised for their participation in the 2019 AFCON. In other words, a minor upset could be in the making in the match that will live stream from Alexandria.

Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr pleaded for “serenity and harmony” in his team’s camp, according to BeIn Sports, even as star winger Ahmed Musa refused to show up at a press conference ahead of the Guinea match, apparently protesting over a bonus he allegedly failed to receive for Nigeria’s opening-match win over Burundi.
Guinea’s side has been fortified by the return from injury or Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita, who was injured in a Liverpool UEFA Champions League match about two months ago, according to The South African.
“He gives a lot, he’s a leader in his own way. We need him. He helps us benefit from his experience in big matches. It’s a bonus to have him,” forward Sory Kaba said of his teammate.
