Gabon target three points against Niger
23 January 2012, 16:47
Africa Cup of Nations co-hosts Gabon finally get their 2012 campaign
underway in Libreville on Monday night, and they will be targeting three
points against debutants Niger. The Group C match takes place at the
Stade d’Angondje, kick-off 18h00 SA time.
The Panthers will carry a huge burden of expectation from their
supporters, but could be inspired by the example set by counterparts
Equatorial Guinea, who claimed a 1-0 win over Libya in front of fanatic
home support on the tournament’s opening night.
A similar result for Gabon would add to the buoyant mood surrounding the
country’s football, this after their U-23 team secured a place at the
2012 Summer Olympics thanks to a strong showing in the final
qualification tournament late last year.
