Match between the teams of Rwanda and Equatorial Guinea of the second day of the African Nations Championship.
Important. Not to be confused with the African Cup, which is the maximum continental competition. On this occasion, the teams that make up both selections are combined formed by players from the local leagues, so the above references are not always valid.
Rwanda on the first day drew an important point against the Nigerian team that gives Rwandans many chances to qualify if they beat Equatorial Guinea.
It is not bad selection. Despite being relatively weak, he has participated 3 times of the 5 editions of this competition, in the last edition reaching the quarterfinals in the one held in his country.
This selection is not bad because there are enough players from the Rwandan national team who play in the national league and the team does not lose much level in competitions of this profile.
The teams of the Rwandan league are also loose, but it is true that they are not any candy. They overcome some round in the continental competitions, in some cases against teams from larger and populated countries.
I already predicted against the selection of Equatorial Guinea in its party before Libya and the seen gave me the reason. A lack of tactical and defensive concepts that I had not seen for a while, a goalkeeper laughing … It was not a landslide scandal because Libya had to value its rival quite well and decided to wait for it and let the minutes pass to win a victory easy.
Why is the level of Equatorial Guinea so low? For not copying the pick of Libya-Guinea, I remember that Equatorial Guinea is here by chance, because all their rivals in the classification retired and qualified for the tournament without winning anyone, without making a merit.
The selection is very bad. Of a league of very low level and that never has participated in this tournament on its own merits. If we value their clubs, the last participant in the African Champions League took a 5-1 from a team from Sudan (serve as a reference that today Sudan has won 1-0 to Mauritania, for me, the second weakest selection in the tournament).
After what I saw of Equatorial Guinea I hope you lose all your matches in the tournament. Libya went over them and it took 15 minutes to solve a match, something unheard of in Africa. Rwanda has before it a unique opportunity to repeat the success of 2016 and move to the quarterfinals.
