Host Nation Ivory Coast Starts Africa Cup Party With 2-0 Win Over Guinea-Bissau

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (AP) — Seko Fofana needed only four minutes to score the first goal of the Africa Cup of Nations as host country Ivory Coast started with a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau in the tournament opener on Saturday. Jean-Philippe Krasso wrapped up the win in the second half after going close in the first. It was a nervy start from Guinea-Bissau, making just its fourth appearance at the biennial tournament, and Fofana capitalized on a poor clearance by eluding two defenders and shooting inside the right post. Mama Baldé tried responding with an overhead kick at the other end but it was an isolated attack from Guinea-Bissau, which has never won a game at the tournament. The West African nation has finished bottom of its group in each of its previous three appearances. Two-time champion Ivory Coast was able to maintain possession and calmly set about creating chances through patient buildup play. Political Cartoons Krasso went close with a header, then Fofana struck the crossbar after Ouparine Djoco got his fingertips to the …

Guinea-Bissau’s capital blacked out after government fails to pay electricity bill | Guinea-Bissau

Power returned to Guinea-Bissau’s capital on Wednesday afternoon after the west African country’s government resumed payments to Turkish company Karpowership, which had plunged the city into darkness due to an unpaid debt of $17m. Karpowership said it cut off electricity supplies to the city of Bissau – which has a population of more than 490,000 – for one and a half days when fuel suppliers paused work after a protracted period of non-payment. Economy minister Suleimane Seidi told reporters on Wednesday that $6m out of $15m of arrears owed by the Electricity and Water Company of Guinea-Bissau were paid. “We are grateful for the government’s efforts to resolve the fuel payments which have allowed for us to restart operations swiftly and continue providing the people of Guinea-Bissau with electricity,” Karpowership’s spokesperson said in a statement. Karpowership, one of the world’s largest operators of floating power plants and part of the Karadeniz Energy Group, has been supplying 100% of Guinea-Bissau’s electricity needs since signing a deal in 2019, according to its website. “Karpower has agreed to …

The scout using Football Manager to find players for Guinea-Bissau | Guinea-Bissau football team

Jack Charlton led the Republic of Ireland from international also-rans to the World Cup quarter-finals. When appointed manager of the national team in the late 1980s, he cast the net for players far and wide, searching through genealogies and tracking down anybody with Irish roots. It was a controversial approach, but it worked. Fast forward thirty-odd years and another Jack C is undertaking similar searches, but this time on behalf Guinea-Bissau. For a country with a population of just two million, the need to expand the pool of players is understandable. This is where Jack Coles plays a crucial role. Coles, who worked as a recruitment analyst at Leicester for four years before taking over as head of data analysis at Coventry City, discovered that Guinea-Bissau were missing out on footballers while playing a computer game. “While playing Football Manager, I became aware of the facility to switch players from one country to a different nation,” he says. “Initially I looked into the links between Curaçao and the Netherlands and soon realised that there were …
