Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2019 match:
After sharing the spoils with the likes of Benin and Cameroon in the first two group games, Ghana will be looking to beat Guinea-Bissau on Tuesday evening and book their place in the Africa Cup of Nations last 16. The Black Stars look solid at the back and seeing that they managed to keep four clean sheets in previous five games in all competitions, one goal could decide the winner in the New Suez Stadium.
Guinea-Bissau, on the other hand, have yet to find the net at the tournament in Egypt and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Ghana’s party in Suez. A man to watch in the away team will be Premier League attacker Jordan Ayew, who found the net in the 2-2 draw with Benin. You should know that Ghana and Guinea-Bissau face each other for the first time ever at the major tournaments.
Highlighted Player (Judilson Mamadu Tuncará Gomes):
Nicknamed Pele, Judilson Mamadu Tuncara Gomes is a 183-cm-tall midfielder who was born in Aqualva-Cacem Portugal. Despite being born in Portugal, Pele decided to represent Guinea-Bissau on the international stage. Judilson Mamadu Tuncara Gomes made two appearances Portugal U19 team, while receiving a call-up for the U20 team for a friendly against France.
Speaking of his senior debut, Pele played his first match for Guinea-Bissau on June 10, 2017 in a 1-0 win over Namibia. As for his club career, the Guinea-Bissau international played for the likes of Belenenses, Genoa, Milan, Arsenal Kyiv, Olhanense, Benfica, Pacos Ferreira, Feirense, Rio Ave and Monaco before joining Nottingham Forest on loan in 2019.
His main position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. Pele’s preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Monaco which should expire on June 30, 2023.
Highlighted Team (Ghana):
Ghana are an African football team administered by Ghana Football Association. The Black Stars made their first ever appearances at the World Cup finals in 2006 and they were grouped with the likes of Italy, Czech Republic and United States. Ghana booked their place in the last 16, but they were outclassed by Brazil in the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament.
In 2010 the Ghanaians did remarkably well to make it to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup and it has to be noted that they were more than unfortunate not to eliminate Uruguay in the knockout stages of the tournament in South Africa.
The likes of Asamoah Gyan, Richard Kingson, John Paintsil, Emmanuel Agymang-Badu, Sulley Muntari, John Mensah, Andre Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah, Harrison Afful and Abedi Pele are Ghana’s most capped players, but, no doubt, Michael Essien is the most famous footballer who played for the Black Stars. The Ghanaians play their home games in white shirts, while the colour of the team’s away kit is red.
