Defender part of tournament squad this month

12 June 2019

Julian Jeanvier has been named in Guinea's final 23-man Africa Cup of Nations squad, which begins in Egypt later this month.

The defender, who played for France at youth level, made his national team debut last week when they lost 1-0 to Gambia. Yesterday, the 27-year-old earned his second cap in another 1-0 defeat, this time to Benin.

Julian is one of only three players selected from England, along with Fulham's Ibrahima Cisse and Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita.

Paul Put's side start their campaign in Group B against Madagascar on Saturday 22 June. Four days later, one of this year's favourites Nigeria face Guinea in what could be the game of the group. The finak match sees them come up against minnows Burundi.

This news confirms that two of Brentford's current squad will play in AFCON 2019, with Kamohelo Mokotjo also included in South Africa's team to face Morocco, Ivory Coast and Namibia in Group D.
