Afcon 2021: Liverpool’s Naby Keita named in Guinea squad

Guinea coach Naba Diawara is the first manager to name his final Africa Cup of Nations squad following his roster announcement on Tuesday. Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita highlights the 27-player list, which is composed of players based in Europe and two players based at Guinean power club Horoya. 18-year-old Red Bull Leipzig midfielder Ilaix Moriba is also an interesting name, with the Conakry-born player switching his allegiance to Guinea after representing Spain at U-17 level. Moriba is a highly regarded prospect who has drawn comparisons to Paul Pogba and began his career at FC Barcelona before moving to Leipzig for the 2021-22 season.

Coach Diawara was named to lead to Guinea at the AFCON following a disastrous FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign, which resulted in the dismissal of previous manager Didier Six. Guinea will be expecting to advance out of Group B with games against group members Senegal, Zimbabwe and Malawi.
