Guinea’s interim president, Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, has charged the National Elephants to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon next year.

The National Elephants of Guinea are part of the twenty-four countries who will be competing for the ultimate trophy in the 32nd edition of the world’s second-oldest continental competition.

Speaking at the send-off ceremony, Doumbouya challenged the team to win the continental showpiece in Cameroon else will have to reimburse the money that the country has invested in them.

“Bring back the trophy or bring back the money we invested in you. Period,” the President said as reported by

Guinea will kick start its campaign against Malawi on January 10.
