The football tournament will be held in Gabon from December 9 to December 21.
Competitors in the Economic Community of Central African States (CEMAC) held a drawing ceremony on September 28th at the Friendship Stadium in Libreville in front of representatives of the States and the CEMAC Commission. Results of the draw are as follows: Group A will consist of Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Cameroon and Group B will consist of Congo, Chad, and the Central African Republic. They reviewed the rules of the sub-regional competition at preparatory meetings held earlier this year. The tournament gives the National Nzalang an opportunity to recover from failing to qualify for the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
The Nzalang will play Sierra Leone on Saturday, the sixth and final day of qualifying rounds for the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014.
The national football team of Equatorial Guinea played against the Sierra Leone national team for the final day of qualifying rounds for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The national team delegation is made up of thirty people, twenty of which are players, and is headed by Domingo Mituy Edjang, the President of the Equatorial Guinean Football Federation.
The teams tied, each scoring two goals, in the first leg that took place in the New Stadium of Malabo. The National Nzalang cannot qualify at this point, so the objective of Saturday’s match is to improve its classification in the world ranking with a win. The match can be followed on National Radio on the program Estudio Estadio.
Equatorial Guinea’s Men National Soccer Team, the Nzalang, recently tied 1-1 with Tunisia, at a game held at the Malabo stadium. The team struggled without it’s key player, Emilio Nsue.
After losing to Cape Verde 2-1 on their last game, the National Nzalang of Equatorial Guinea is further from qualifying for the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014.
Though Obina scored for the women’s Nzalang shortly after Cape Verde in the second half, they were unable to tie the match before the game was over.
The loss put Nzalang at third place in their group with a total of 4 points, followed by Cape Verde with 3 points. Ahead of Nzalang is Sierra Leone with 5 points and Tunisia with 10 points.
Domingo Mituy Edjang, the President of the National Football Federation, assisted in the integration of two new players for the indoor soccer team of Equatorial Guinea while visiting Spain this week.
