The ex player of the FC Barcelona, Ilaix Moriba, finds contesting the African tournament of selections with the combined of Guinea. His performance with the national team has been brilliant and has cost him the election like the best young player of the competition. Of this way, the footballer that at present is a member of the Leipzig would be sending a message to his trainer in the German team, where has not seen a lot of minutes.

From his arrival to the football germano in the market estival, the midfield player only has seen action during 100 minutes. However, the good moment that lives in the tournament could do change of opinion to Domenico Tedesco. The guinean already had given good signals in his debut with the selection and has confirmed that it can give more in the Glass Africa.

In fact, Ilaix Moriba could have played with the selection of Spain and has had contested some parties with the juvenile. Nevertheless, it finished decanting by the team of Guinea. No less surprising was his exit of the FC Barcelona to add to the rows of the RB Leipzig, where has not had the sufficient confidence by part of the trainer.

Ilaix, in front of another big opportunity

The next challenge for the midfield player formed in The Masia will be the commitment by the eighth of final of the Glass Africa in front of Gambia, that comes to classify in the last date of his group after imposing to Tunisia by the minimum difference in the last minutes, leaving like one of the best third to the 'Eagles of Carthage' by difference of goals in a zone that had to Mali like leader.

It is foreseen that Ilaix can be headline again after not seeing minutes of game in front of Malawi in the first phase. The tournament that is desarrolando in Cameroon has left some surprises, like the elimination of two favourites: the 'Black Stars' of Ghana and Algeria, that arrived like defender of the title, and the classification of the Islands Comoras in his debut.
