Guinea Heating Up To Face Ghana; E-mail
Written by Patrick Doamekpor   
After thrashing one of the tournament’s debutantes before facing off with the impressive 2010 FIFA World Cup™ quarter-finalists, Diallo says that the tournament has further proven that the gap between top and bottom has shrunk in Africa.

"Even for the so-called 'small' teams, there are better preparations. Most of the teams playing here in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea are at their best, so everyone is more and more on the same level. That might sound crazy to say that after we beat Botswana 6-1, but I mean it,” he insisted. “When you see a team like Senegal, with so many great strikers, already out of the tournament, you tell yourself that nothing more is certain in football. I hope Guinea can take advantage from that, beat Ghana and play at least the quarter-finals.”

Traore, who scored the injury-time winner for Guinea against Nigeria that sealed qualification and knocked the Super Eagles out of contention for the finals, agreed with his team-mate. "It has been a good competition, played at a top level so far and even newcomers like Niger and Botswana have shown they are no pushovers."

The National Elephants, who reached the last eight in 2004, 2006 and 2008 of the continental showpiece, are hoping to prove themselves against Ghana at Franceville Stadium. The Black Stars have begun the event with two victories, and are considered to be one of the tournament's favourites.In anothe development Ghana,s suspended players in the persons of John MENSAH the skipper and Issac vorsah,have completed thier suspensions, and are now free to face the boastful Guineans squarelly.
