Guinea Bissau stunned the Super Eagles of Nigeria 0-1 in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Moshood Abiola National stadium in AbujaA 29th minute goal for the visitors to seal the 3 points and get a resounding away victory.

Jose Peseiro started a similar team to the one beaten 4-0 by Portugal last November. Zaidu Sanusi replaced William Troost-Ekong while Joe Aribo, Moses Simon, and Terem Moffi started on the bench. Guinea Bissau goalkeeper Dalcio Gomes made his first save off Osimhen in the 16th minute after a pass from Kelechi Iheanacho sent the Napoli forward through.

Balde shocked the Abuja Stadium crowd in the 30th minute when he deftly collected the lofted ball from Opa Sangante from beyond the halfway line. Both Nigeria’s central defenders – Calvin Bassey and Kevin Akpoguma – were caught dithering. Balde controlled and had time to pass the ball beyond the despairing dive of Francis Uzoho.

The win against Nigeria means that the Eagles have lost their spot at the top of Group A to Guinea Bissau.

Before the game, Nigeria was topping the group with six points while Guinea Bissau had four points. The win  takes Guinea Bissau to seven points to top the group, brightening their chances of playing in Ivory Coast next year. The teams will face each other again on the 27th of March in Bissau.
