2021 Nations Cup: Equatorial Guinea Announce Squad

Equatorial Guinea have published their list of 28 players for the Africa Cup of Nations to be held in Cameroon from January 9 to February 6.

The Nzalang Nacional are pitted against 2019 Champions Algeria, debutants Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast in Group E, based in Japoma.

The list was released by local coach Juan Micha Obiang, who replaced Frenchman Sebastien Migne nearly a year ago.

Former Birmingham defender Emilio Nsue has been included in the squad despite being doubtful to future in his second Nations Cup since he hasn’t been actively competing in top flight for a while.

However, coach Obiang insisted Nsue will remain the captain of the side despite being clubless after parting ways with Cypriot side, Apoel.

Las Palman defender Saul Basilio Coco is also in the 28-man squad, but there is no place for Futuro Kings goalkeeper Fellipe Ovono.

The other notable absentee from the squad is Sassuolo’s midfielder Pedro Obiang who has been away since last August due to myocarditis.
