Guinea take on Namibia later on Tuesday night in a second match for Group D at the ongoing CHAN tournament in Cameroon.
The Brave Warriors are underdogs at the tournament even more considering that their domestic league back home has been in active for over a year.
On paper, Guinea are the favourites as they have participated in such a tournament several times.
Little wonder, they have deployed an offensive 4-3-3 attacking formation while Namibia’s approach seems cautious.
In an earlier kick-off, Zambia beat neighbours Tanzania 2-0 at the same Limbe OmniSports Stadium.
Collins Sikombe penalty in the 62nd minute following a handball and Emmanuel Chabula’s 82nd minute strike was enough to gift Zambia the win at the Limbe Omnisports Stadium.

Guinea: Mohamed Coumbassa, Mohamed Bangoura, Ibrahim Dombouya, Mohamed Traore, Ibrahim Camara, Mamadouba Bangoura, Morayle Sylla, Camara Moussa, Mory Kante, Yakhouba Barry, Naby Camara

Namibia: Edward Maova, Ivan Kamberipa, Emilio Martin, Vitapi Ngaruka, Aprocious Petrus, Dynamo Fredericks, Lucky Heita, Absalom Iimbondi, Obry Amseb, Marcell Papama, Elmo Kambindu
