Gabon Team News
Following his side’s strong performance in the 2-2 draw with Morocco last time out, we anticipate Neveu to choose a similar lineup on Sunday, which means Aaron-Salem Boupendza might lead the line once more.
Gabon, on the other hand, will be missing star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has pulled out of the competition and returned to Arsenal due to a health issue.
Allevinah has performed admirably at the offensive end of the pitch in the absence of the 32-year-old striker, and the Clermont Foot player will aim to add to his two goals in the tournament.
