AFCON 2021: Egypt targets maiden win as they take on Guinea Bissau

Egypt enters match day two of the the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations with the intention of winning only to revive their hopes as they take on  Guinea Bissau at Roumdé Adjia Stadium.

The record AFCON champions are seeking an important victory over Guinea-Bissau on Saturday in order to achieve their first three points that revive their hopes in the tournament.

The Pharaohs lost with a lone goal to Nigeria in the opening match, which witnessed a performance that angered many supporters of the Egyptian team.

According to Egypt head coach Carlos Queiroz, they must improve their performance if they are to register maximum points on Saturday.

Every match is important and we will try to improve our performance. We will face a good team and of course we respect them a lot because everyone is improving,” Queiroz said before adding.

“We want to play a different game, and I have confidence in my players who played last game. Mohamed Salah is a player in our team, we win or lose together, and we all share the responsibility.”

“For me the most important is the team and I promise to see a different performance in the second match,” he added.
Guinea-Bissau on the other hand, seeks to create a historic surprise and beat record holders Egypt to enhance their chances of reaching the next round.

Guinea-Bissau has never faced Egypt in the AFCON, so this is a special encounter for the team that is participating in the tournament for the third time in a row.
