Sylla starts in Guinea's Tunisia defeat

IDRISSA Sylla played 65 minutes of Guinea’s 4-1 defeat against Tunisia on Saturday evening.

The QPR striker started Guinea’s FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier in Conakry but he was replaced by Ibrahima Sankhon 25 minutes from time

Guinea took the lead at the Stade du 28 Septembre after 35 minutes through Naby Keita before the visitors pulled themselves level in first half injury time courtesy of Youssef Maskni.

Maskni then added a second in the 74th minute before Mohamed Ben Amor made it 3-1 to Tunisia seven minutes from time.

However, Maskni completed his hat trick deep into second half stoppage time to seal a comprehensive victory.

Guinea are third in Group A with one match remaining and can’t qualify for the finals in Russia next year.
