As they chase their second win in the 2017 U17 CAF Africa Cup of Nations against Cameroon, Guinea skipper Sekou Camara says they are ready for the Group A tie.

The Menas Cadets are motivated after a convincing 5-1 win over hosts Gabon on Sunday night and will now hope to bag another victory.

A win will boost their hopes of booking a spot in the semi-finals thus qualifying for the 2017 FIFA World Cup in India.

On the other hand, Cameroon are still licking their wounds after a humbling 4-0 defeat at the hands of Ghana Sunday night.


However, Camara said together with his troops, they are ready to sweat for a win over the Black Starlets.

“We will have the best condition and ready to sweat so that we can win the match,” said Camara.

“We must first reach the semi-final before proceeding on our next objective of winning the competition.

“Watching Cameroon played against Ghana has given us an idea of what they can do and as a group, we are going to be ready for them.”

Guinea top the log table with three points on goal difference ahead of Ghana after their opening win.

The match will be staged at Stade de Port-Gentil at 15:30 and will be officiated by Senegalese referee, Maguette Ndiaye.
