Liverpool new boy Naby Keita who captained his side in their penultimate World Cup qualifier in Conakry, showed the good and bad sides of his game as Guinea were thrashed 4-1 by Tunisia.
He got his side off to a fine start, breaking through midfield to score the opener.
Keita collected the ball from the left before driving into the box and slotting into the bottom corner.
That was as good as it got for Guinea as Tunisia pulled level before the break – and added three more in the second period.
With the score at 3-1, a frustrated Keita tried to get past Mohamed Ben Amor.
The ball was played out left before the pair came together, with Keita raising his hand in Ben Amor’s direction.
The Tunisian went to the ground in dramatic fashion as the referee pulled out the red card.
Speaking earlier this week, Keita admitted the secret to his success is telling himself just how good he is.
“Out on the pitch, I tell myself: ‘I am the best!’” said Keita.
“I need to have that feeling, not just for myself, but to help the whole team.”
