Nigeria, coached by Portuguese José Peseiro, was surprised this Friday at home by Guinea-Bissau, winner of the game by 1-0 and new commander of Group A qualifying for the 2023 African Cup of Nations.
The game, on the third day of the group, played in Abuja, was decided with the goal scored, in the 29th minute, by Mama Baldé, player of Troyes, from the French League, with a pass from Opa Sanganté.
Nigeria, the big favorite in the group, with ‘stars’ like Victor Oshimen, forward of Napoli, from Italy, had a strong ascendancy in the match, without managing to overcome the well-organized Guinean defense.
After this round, which also included the 2-2 draw between Sierra Leone and São Tomé and Príncipe, on Wednesday, the group is led by Guinea-Bissau, with seven points, one more than Nigeria. Sierra Leone has two points and Sao Tome and Principe one.
Qualifying continues on Sunday, with São Tomé and Príncipe hosting Sierra Leone, and on Monday, with Guinea-Bissau hosting Nigeria, in Bissau.
The top two teams in the group qualify for the finals.
