By Kayode Sanni-Arewa

The Djurtus of Guinea Bissau today hammered Super Eagles of in an AFCON 2025 Qualifiers by defeating them 1-0 at the Moshood Abiola International National Stadium in .

Mama Balde who plays for French Ligue 1 side Troyes scored for the visitors in the 29th minute to revive the qualification hopes of the Guineans.

All effort by the Super Eagles to get a goal back proved abortive in the match.

Nigeria has 6 points from three games after recording two wins and one loss while Guinea Bissau climbed to the top of the log after amassing two wins and a draw.

The reverse fixture comes up in three days in Guinea Bissau.

Two teams will qualify from each group to feature at the AFCON in Cote' Ivoire next year January.

Below is the Super Eagles starting XI against Guinea-Bissau:

Uzoho, Osayi-Samuel, Bassey, Akpoguma, Zaidu, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi, Ademola Lookman, Samuel Chukwueze and Victor Osimhen
