Aguibou Camara receives plaudits after Olympic qualification

GUINEA

Guinea midfielder Aguibou Camara was the recipient of many post-match plaudits following their Olympic play-off success – and his eye-catching performance augers well for his side’s chances at Paris 2024.

Homer’s Odyssey, the epic poem recounting the return of Ulysses to his homeland, has a special place in Greek heritage. Young Guinean Aguibou Camara has been immersed in this culture since 2021, when he joined Olympiacos from Lille. The attacking midfielder was subsequently loaned to Atromitos, based in the suburbs of Athens, the capital of Greece and the birthplace of the Olympic Games.

Just as the Greek literary hero deals with a multitude of challenges during his eventful journey, Camara has shown himself adept at tackling any obstacles barring the path of the Guinean Olympic side. Case in point: the play-off for the 2024 Men’s Olympic Football Tournament against Indonesia on Thursday at Clairefontaine, during which the diminutive playmaker was the star of the show in a hard-fought 1-0 win for Kaba Diawara’s men.

“It was like we were playing with 12 guys out there, because Aguibou was absolutely everywhere,” stated coach Diawara. “He’s a fantastic footballer. He’s going to be a key player for us during the Olympic Games, and he’s going to delight the fans.”
