Hibernians goalkeeper Ibrahim Kone has been selected to form part of teh Guinea National Team for the upcoming African Cup of Nations, the club said on Wednesday.
The towering goalkeeper has been part of the Guinea since 2018 when he was given his debut by coach Paul Put in a 1-0 victory over Central Africa in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
Since then, Kone has been a regular member of the African side and was also in the squad as the team managed to book his place in the continental finals that will be held in Cameroon.
“Congratulations to our goalkeeper Ibrahim Koné who has been selected with the Guinean National Team for the 2021 African Cup of Nations!,” Hibernians said in a statement.
Guinea were drawn in Group B where they will face Malawi, Senegal and Zimbabwe.
They play their opening match on January 21 against Malawi.
