Guirassy headlines star-studded Guinea for Zebras clash


FRANCISTOWN: Germany based forward, Serhou Guirassy will lead a star-studded Guinea side when they face the Zebras in the 2026 World Cup qualifier billed for the Obed Itani Stadium tomorrow. Guinea are high in confidence after opening their qualifying campaign with a 2-1 narrow victory against Uganda on Saturday.

On the other hand, Zebras started their campaign with a 3-2 home loss to the Mambas of Mozambique on Thursday. With the exception of one player, none of the Guinea players ply their trade in Africa. They mostly play for French and German elite clubs.

A few of them are scattered across lower leagues in Europe and Arab countries. Guirassy, who was introduced in the 65th minute against Uganda, is the second highest scorer in the German Bundesliga with 15 goals in nine league outings. He is two goals behind the leading scorer, Harry Kane. This means that the Zebras defence should always be on alert tomorrow. The Zebras were very porous against Mozambique last week, something that deeply infuriated head coach, Didier Gomes Da Rosa.
