Coach: Michel Dussuyer
Captain: Kamil Zayatte
Nickname: Syli Nationale (National Elephants)
Best AFCON finish: Second (1976)
AFCON 2013 finish: Did not qualify
Apart from their success in 1976, when Guinea finished as runners up behind Morocco, their best years in terms of the African Cup of Nations have been in the 2000's. After missing out on the 2002 edition through disqualification, the National Elephants made it to the last eight for three tournaments in a row, between 2004 and 2008.
Currently ranked as Africa's sixth best team, Guinea have to date featured in 10 of 29 AFCON tournaments. Their record in Africa's premier showpiece reads: 11 wins, 12 draws and 12 defeats.
Captain Kamil Zayatte is Guinea's main man. The powerfully built centre-back is closing in on 50 caps since making his international debut back in 2006.
The 29-year-old from Conakry has enjoyed a stellar club career, having stared out at French top flight side Lens before moving to Switzerland's Young Boys and then going on to play for Hull City in England's Premier League. Currently with Sheffield Wednesday, Zayatte also spent two seasons in Turkey.
Kevin Constant is another Guinea player to have impressed in Europe. The wide player, who plays in defence or midfield, was a regular in the Milan side between 2012 and 2014, and currently plays for Turkish outfit Trabzonspor.
Ibrahima Traore could also potentially make an impact at AFCON 2015. The 26-year-old recently moved to Bundesliga team Borussia Monchengladbach, initially having made his name at VfB Stuttgart.
Ibrahima Conte, a 23-year-old midfielder who joined Belgium's Anderlecht last year, already has considerable international experience under his belt after debuting in 2010 and could be another important member of the Guinea side.
