Wild Dogs of Guinea-Bissau recorded a shock 1-0 win against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Group A of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers in Abuja in what was their first-ever win against Nigeria.

A first-half goal from Mama Balde sealed one of the shocks in the qualifying series and took Guinea Bissau to seven points, usurping the Eagles as Group A leaders.

Osimhen had the Eagle’s first chance on goal in the 4th minute but his header off Samuel Chukwueze’s cross went wide.

Guinea-Bissau took the lead in the 29th minute thanks to Balde who expertly controlled a long pass before slotting past Francis Uzoho.

The two teams will meet again on Monday, 27 March for the second leg.
