Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Sudan and Guinea face each at Stade de Marrakech (neutral location) in the 2022 World Cup qualifier on Wednesday afternoon. Sudan made a slow start to their WC qualifying campaign, with the team losing to both Morocco (0-2) and Guinea Bissau (2-4). Since the Falcons of Jediane have been struggling at the back in the qualifiers for the showpiece tournament, home win should not be considered. A man to watch in the home side will be Abdel Raman, who scored a brace in the second group game.
Guinea, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Guinea Bissau in their opener. The National Elephants are eager to record their first win of the process, and they should take advantage of Sudan’s shaky defence, and the fact that game will be played on neutral location. The opposition defenders should have Lokomotiv Moscow attacker Francois Kamano at bay.
Highlighted Player (Mo Eisa):
Born on the 12th of July, 1994, in Khartoum, Sudan, Mo Eisa is a Sudanese professional footballer who plays for Peterborough United in the third tier of English Football. The 6ft tall striker/ winger is a Pro Touch Soccer Academy product.

On the 7th of July, 2017, Eisa signed a contract with League Two outfit Cheltenham Town and made his league debut on the 5th of August, 2017.
A prolific season with the Robins earned him the Supporters' Player Of The Year and the Players' Player Of The Year awards at the end of the season. For the 18/19 season, the 25-year-old joined Championship side Bristol for a brief stint before returning to League One with Peterborough for the following season on a four-year contract.
Highlighted Team (Guinea):
Nicknamed the National Elephants, Guinea national team are affiliated to the Guinea Football Federation. Guinea qualified for their 12th Africa Cup of Nations and they will face the likes of Nigeria, Madagascar and Burundi in the group stages of the tournament in Egypt.
The National Elephants have yet to win the Africa Cup of Nations, but they were on the verge of going all the way at the tournament in Ethiopia back in 1976. Guinea finished the final round in second place in the standings, only one point behind champions Morocco.
The National Elephants wear red socks, yellow shorts and green socks when welcoming their rivals, whilst their away colours are yellow and red. Guinea suffered a 2-1 loss to Togo in their first international game (May, 1962). The African side recorded their biggest win against Mauritania (14-0) on May, 1972), whilst a 6-0 loss to Zaire (July, 1972) is considered the biggest defeat in the history of the national team.
