African Nations Championship: Guinea claim final 2018 place
Guinea crushed Senegal 5-0 Wednesday to complete the line-up for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) finals in Kenya.
Amadou Sekou Camara was the hero in Conakry as he scored a hat-trick to help the hosts to a 6-3 aggregate win.
The win also came despite Guinea missing a penalty in a match delayed 24 hours by rain.
Guinea join 14 other nations and hosts Kenya in the finals of the tournament for locally-based players only.
