The Syli Nationale of Guinea presently tops the point chart in Group D lodged in Limbe-Buea with three points, three goals in day-1 action at the ongoing CHAN in Cameroon.
Guinea until another twist will be established enjoys leadership in the group after overpowering an the Brave Warriors 3-0 in full time at the Limbe Omnisport Stadium some 8 kms from the Limbe town.
Infact, the Guinean team proved to be a near perfect team through ball possessions, tact, football manipulation and the transition of the ball from the goal post through the defense, midfield and finally to the strikers.
Guinea totally disconnected the Namibian style of play as early as 13 minutes with a goal exploited from the poor defense of Namibia
Young and agile Morlaye Sylla, Man of the Match portrayed beauty blended with tact at the 45+2 minutes with a sprint curled at goal spot to give Guinea 2-0 before first half.
Some nine minutes to the end of the match, here comes Yakhouba Barry again with an incredible shot to double his scores and take his Syli Nationale to 3 goals while the Brave Warriors of Namibia languished and bowed out with no goal.
At the second place in the group is Zambia, the boys of Milutin Sredojevic, a Serbian football manager who served the Ugandan cranes.
The Chipolopolos of Zambia humbled neighbouring Tanzania 2-0 in full time to grab the second position in the group after day-1 with plus two goals.
The two goals netted at third quarter of the second half were scored by Collins Sikombe, voted Man of the Match and Emmanuel Chabula, a striker that created a great upset in the Namibian defence line.
At the bottom, we have Namibia and Tanzania, both teams are still to visit the goal post and keep a name in the ongoing tournament.
Tanzanian players say their most experienced and expensive player John Bocco was absent in the game, reason why they failed to buttress many scoring opportunities.
Namibia blames their failure on lack of concentration at almost all zones in the field. They rather sounded very ready for the next match against Tanzania
