With the 33rd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON less than two weeks away, Guinea military president, Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya has told the country’s squad to the biennial tournament that they should either win the trophy or bring back the money spent in preparing for it.

“Bring back the trophy or bring back the money we invested in you. Period,” the President said.

Guinea kick start their campaign against Malawi on January 10.

The 2021 AFCON Will Kick-off on January 9 to February 6, 2022 in Cameroon.
