  • Description

    Guinea and Nigeria drew one all in the final pool of the African Nations' Cup Soccer tournament in Addis Ababa on Tuesday night (9 March).

    Guinea, the favourites, looked in real trouble against Nigeria who went ahead with a goal from Lawal Mudashiri. Nigeria held on grimly to their advantage.

    The Guineans seemed unable to find any formula to beat the solid Nigerian defence until Nabylaye Camara saved his team from a surprise defeat with a good right-foot shot into the net in the last minute of the game.

    Both teams started extremely slowly and seemed to have lost a lot of aggression after the two-day lay-off since the first round finished last Saturday (6 March).

    They played cautiously and seemed more concerned not to let in goals than to score them.

    Guinea's forwards, who seemed the most dangerous of all the teams in last week's matches, made many mistakes and appeared to have lost the imagination and flair which distinguished them in earlier games.

    SYNOPSIS: Guinea and Nigeria drew one all on Tuesday in the final pool of the African nations' Cup Soccer tournament being played in Addis Ababa. At first, Guinea, the favourites, looked in real trouble against Nigeria. But both teams showed that they had lost a lot of their aggression after the two-day lay-off since the first round finished last Saturday. They played cautiously and seemed more concerned not to let in goals than to score them.

    Nigeria scored the first goal with a good shot from Lawal Mudashiri and held on grimly to their advantage.

    The Guineans seemed unable to find any formula to beat the Nigerians after that until Nabylaye Camara saved his team from defeat with a good right-foot shot into the net in the last minute of the game. Before the goal was scored, Guinea's forwards who seemed the most dangerous of all the teams in last week's matches, made many mistakes and appeared to have lost the imagination and flair which distinguished them in earlier games.
