Super Eagles handler, Gernot Rohr has said he will not take the Guinean team lightly.

Nigeria faces Guinea in their second group match at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

Rohr recognised that the Syli Stars have quality players representing top clubs.

Liverpool’s Naby Keta,Toulouse’s Issiaga Sylla, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Simon Falette, Napoli’s Amadou Diawara and Bordeaux’s Franois Kamano are some of the eye-catching names on the Syli Stars.

Guinea drew 2-2 with Madagascar in their opener.

”We are ready because the players are getting fit. The pressure is on Guinea because they have to win this match but we are in a positive situation, we are topping the group with three points, we want to remain top and if we win we are sure to be through which is a good motivation for our players, so I think this match is the most difficult in the group when you see the players they have, players playing in such big teams like Liverpool, Napoli, Bordeaux, Toulouse,” Rohr said at Tuesday’s press conference.

”A lot of them have been educated in France with French football philosophy.

”There is even a teammate of one of our players Kalu, Kamano. They play together in the same team, they are friends but there will be no friendship tomorrow, it will be a difficult match.
