Madagascar – Statistics & Current Form
The Malagasy sniffed in their opening match shortly at the sensation, as the team was even in the meantime 2-1 against Guinea in front. But the opposing coach brought probably also in terms of the gap just a few minutes later his star Naby Keita of Liverpool into the game, whose substitution immediately boosted the offensive of the Syli National in the episode. Just four minutes later, Guinea’s favored selection fell to equalize. This was also the final result, which Madagascar scored a point at its premiere at the African Cup.
Although the “Barea” was less convincing on offense, as the goals came only after a standard and a collective blackout to defend Guinea, but the defensive made a quite appealing job. The burgeoning success of the country over the past few years has been associated with the name Nicolas Dupuis: since the Frenchman has had the sporting sayings, football is noticeably improving on the world’s fourth-largest island.

After a still respectable 3: 3 against Luxembourg, in which two goals conceded in stoppage time, followed by two bankruptcies against Kenya and Mauritania. Although Madagascar’s offensive is not a showpiece, with Carolus Andriamatsinoro it has at least one unerring player.
