Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita showed flashes of brilliance ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals when he scored for Guinea in the 2-0 win over Rwanda on Thursday.
France-based Clermont FC forward Mohamed Lamine Bayo put Guinea ahead with a 25th minute finish in the friendly played at Amahoro Stadium in Kigali.
Nine minutes later, Keita made sure of the win when he scored at the end of a counterattack for the visitors who also beat Rwanda 3-0 in another friendly played on Monday. Keita missed that match.
