2019 AFCON: What we must do to beat Nigeria – Guinea coach, Paul Put


Guinea coach, Paul Put, has said that his team must be “bigger” to beat the Super Eagles in their second Group B game at the African Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

The Syli Star must avoid defeat from Nigeria in order to brighten their chances of advancing to the last 16 in Egypt.

Paul Put’s men drew 2-2 in their opener against Madagascar on Saturday.

However, Put is aiming to get their campaign back on track against Nigeria.

”I know I have a big game to play on Wednesday against Nigeria. Today the group that did not start the match against Madagascar trained and the other group worked in the massage room,” Put told Guineefoot.info.

”Nigeria is a great team, and it’s up to us to be bigger.”

Nigeria and Guinea have met 17 times in the past, with the Super Eagles winning five, drawing seven and losing five.
