AFCON Match Preview: Nigeria vs Guinea

Nigeria got their campaign off to a winning start against Burundi, but they struggled. That was their easiest match on paper, which means they must improve.

Guinea, on the other hand, drew 2-2 with Madagascar in their group opener and that was supposed to be their least daunting fixture. Now they have to defend against the likes of Odion Ighalo and Alex Iwobi.
