Ideally launched by a goal of Aubameyang, the Gabonese finally conceded the draw (1-1) against Guinea-Bissau and miss their entry in the tournament. On a constructed action, Aubamyenag deviates quickly for Bounaga. The attacker adjusted for Aubameyang who opened the score in the 52th minute.
On an indirect free kick, Juary escapes the opponent’s mark and extends the ball to the head to deceive Evono by the Guinean equalizing score in the 90th minute. The Stadium of Friendship is KO! This equalization is not at all undeserved for Guinea with all that they showed during the game. Gabon stopped playing and was less vigilant
Rarely in recent years, the opening match was summed up as a fun game for the organizing country. This constancy was checked again this Saturday in Libreville, where the Gabonese, long in good position, ended up being caught by the surprising Guinea-Bissau (1-1). More than a setback, this result could put them in danger in the race to the quarter-finals, they are about to fight with Burkina Faso and Cameroon, opponents resolutely more honed at this level.
For Guinea-Bissau, which took part in its first final phase of ACN, it is a real performance, and today Guinea Bissau got its very first point in the history of this competition and showed a capacity for reaction and courage that forced admiration, all in a context of adversity.
Guinea-Bissau snatched the draw (1-1) in the final minutes after a solid match. Gabon dominated the game but lacked vigilance at the end of the game. This is a real underperformance for Gabon with this single point obtained.
