The Syli Star will by all means avoid defeat from Nigeria so as to brighten their chances of qualifying to the last 16 in Egypt.

Paul Put’s men drew 2-2 in their opener against Madagascar on Saturday.

However, Put is aiming to get their campaign back on track against Nigeria.

”I admit I have a big game to play on Wednesday against Nigeria. Today the group that did not begin the match against Madagascar trained and the other group worked in the massage room,” Put told

Nigeria is a very good team, and it’s up to us to be better.”

Nigeria and Guinea have met 17 times in the past, with the Super Eagles winning five, drawing seven and losing five.
