Here are my predictions leading to the afro basket 2021 tournament
My prediction is Guinea is marked as one of the favorite teams by now they can change their game at any phase of time their team is capable of handling all sorts of pressure and has the potential of defeating the strongest home side team so for my concern, it will be the almighty guinea team.
