Guinea Bissau Earned Massive 4-2 Victory Against Hosts Sudan In WCQ

In Omdurman, Guinea Bissau’s Djurtus went top of Group I with an assured 4-2 victory over host nation Sudan. Piqueti scored a brace while Frederic Mendy and Mama Balde grabbed one each in the healthy win.

Guinea Bissau went 1-0 up after only eight minutes when Piqueti picked the ball at the edge of the box, drove in and shot low past the keeper.

Piqueti was to be included in the second goal as well when he brought in a cross from the right. Skipper Mendes Jonas miscued his shot before leaving space for Mendy to score as they went to the break with a 2-0 lead.

The tempo was raised and the Djurtus went 3-0 up with Piqueti completing his brace with a smart low shot into the bottom left after Moreto Cassama had played a good dummy to take away one defender and give his teammate space to kill off the game.

In the second half, Sudan got themselves into the game through Mohamed Abdel Rahman. The Sudanese had turned over possession and made it count, giving themselves a slight belief of a comeback just 10 minutes after the restart

But all their efforts to climb the massive mountain came to nothing. And it was Guinea Bissau who would add a goal with eight minutes left, Balde powering a header home off a well weighted corner.

Sudan scored a late consolation goal, Abdel Rahman reacting fastest after the Guinea Bissau keeper had spilled a shot from distance.

Guinea Bissau moved to top of Group I on four points, one more than Morocco. Guinea has one while Sudan trail pointless.

However, Guinea – Morocco game was postponed due to ongoing military coup in hosts Guinea.
