If you are a football fan you’ll be aware that Afcon 2017 is around the corner. Just take a look at how much this tournament means to the people of Guinea Bisau:

🇬🇼⚽ • Just in case you needed a reminder of how big football is in Africa, here's an image of the Guinea Bissau men's team being sent off by their faithful supporters.

The team departed from Bissau today and all eyes will be on their first match; the opener against Gabon on the 14th of January. _____________________________________ #AFCON #GuineaBissau #Libreville #Gabon #AfricanFootball #Bissau #DailyHype #Hypewriter
