The growing apathy of Guinean supporters’ during matches involving the national team at the 28 September Stadium here is seriously worrying the Guinean Football Association (FGF), a few months to the start of the last round of the 2010 CAN-World Cup joint qualifiers. FGF Secretary General Fodé Capi Camara has therefore called for support for the Syli National, which will be playing in Group E against Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire and Malawi when the qualifiers resume next March. “Our boys claim to have some difficulties in playing before the Guinean public,” Camara told reporters, adding that the national side could feel better playing away than at home, as shown by its excellent performance. “Rival teams are even more applauded than the Syli national which is booed by the public as soon as it starts warming up. Guineans must break with this oddity,” the official advised.
