AFCON 2023: Guinea-Bissau Not Scared Of Super Eagles, Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea  –Gano

Guinea-Bissau striker, Zinho Gano has insisted that the team is not scared of facing Nigeria’s Super Eagles, hosts, Ivory Coast and Equatorial Guinea in the fast approaching 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Recall that Guinea-Bissau will commence their campaign against Ivory Coast on January 13.

However, Gano, who is the top scorer for his country during the qualifying series, told Cafonline that the team is ready to compete with the best in Group A.

“We know that these are very big countries, but this is an opportunity for us to show that we are there too. We have a good group and we are also here for the fourth time, it shows that we are worth something too.

“Of course! We didn’t even win a match. So our first goal is to win a match and then, to manage to get past the first stage. I know its a difficult group with Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria but we will see. In football, anything is possible.

“No, no pressure. On the contrary, for us it is an honor to play a match like this. The opening match is something special, there will be maybe at least 60,000 people in the stadium. I am a professional footballer, so it is for this type of match that we practice this profession. I’m really looking forward to playing a match like this.

“Everyone must believe that anything is possible. Even for this opening match. With opening matches, there are always surprises and why not, with us. We can win like everyone else, even if it’s Cote d’Ivoire, Nigeria or Senegal. The match is 11 against 11 and anything is possible.”

    Why are they talking of not being afraid? Are they not eleven men representing their sovereign country? Just like Nigeria?
