AFCON 2023: Preview, team news, and kickoff time for Guinea-Bissau vs. Nigeria

In their final group stage match against the Djurtus of Guinea Bissau, Nigeria’s Super Eagles will be trying to guarantee their spot in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

After a disheartening 1-1 draw with Equatorial Guinea to begin their AFCON campaign, Nigeria overcame their hosts Ivory Coast 1-0 to maintain their hopes of advancing to the next round.

Whatever happens in the match between Equatorial Guinea and Ivory Coast, the Super Eagles need to win to guarantee their spot in the next round. They are now logged in second position with goals scored the difference between them and first-placed Nzalanag Nacional of Equatorial Guinea.


Guinea Bissau will be hoping to snap their losing trend at the AFCON and would fancy their chances against the Super Eagles, whom they defeated in the AFCON qualifications in 2023, even though they have no chance of moving on to the next round.
