Guinea midfielder Naby Keita says the side must be more aggressive in their next Group B clash against the Super Eagles of Nigeria, reports Completesports.com.
The Syli Nationale were held to a 2-2 draw by debutants Madagascar in their opening game at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt on Saturday.
Keita, who plays for European champions Liverpool was particularly disappointed with his side’s poor defensive play in the game.
”I think we have to play forward and we have to try to play with aggression,” Keita who came on as a second half substitute against the Barea’s told reporters.
”When you score, do not allow that the opposing team equalize because in this kind of tournament, you don’t give the opportunity to the opponent when you lead.”
Paul Put’s men will take on the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Wednesday at the Alexandria Stadium, Alexandria.
The Super Eagles opened their campaign with a 1-0 win against the Swallows of Burundi on Saturday.
The encounter will kick-off at 3.30 pm Nigerian time.
