The Syli Nacional will be heading to their 13th Nations Cup in Cameroon with their best ever performance being in 1976 when they finished as runners-up.

In spite of the team’s efforts in winning the competition which they are still yet to, Colonel Doumbouya is optimistic that they can be successful and has urged the players led by the caption, Keita, to go all out for the ultimate.

“The cup or you reimburse the money that’s been invested in you,” he said to the team at their sending off meeting.

Guinea have been drawn in Group B alongside Senegal, Zimbabwe and Malawi at the tournament which kicks off in Cameroon on 9 January.
