After the draw against Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea’s head coach warns of more surprises to come



After the draw against Nigeria, it was evident that Equatorial Guinea’s head coach, Juan Micha, was not enthused.


He intends to continue the work to achieve his objectives in this edition of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Cote d’Ivoire 2023.


Equatorial Guinea earned a valuable point on the second day of Group A.


The Nzalang Nacional were able to resist the offensive might of the Super Eagles, largely thanks to the extraordinary form of goalkeeper Jesus Lazaro Owono Ngua, who was subsequently named Man of the Match.


In a post-match press conference, Micha refused to see this result as an achievement. “I think this selection I lead is prepared daily to compete in this tournament… I am lucky to know the details of football, has been a high-level player,” he said.


He added his teammates intend to keep their heads on their shoulders and not plunge into euphoria after this encouraging result.


“Our mission is incomplete, and we still have much to do. We are in a group stage, and this is the first match. We will try to reach the next stage before seeing what happens next.”


Equatorial Guinea will face Guinea-Bissau on Thursday for the second game. A victory against the Djurtus will allow Micha and his men to step into round 16.


During its three previous participations, the Central African country has always managed to get out of the group stages.
