The Guinea national football team, nicknamed Syli Nationale ("National Elephant"), was the national team of Guinea and was controlled by the Fédération Guinéenne de Football. They have never qualified for the World Cup finals, and their best finish in the African Nations Cup was second in the 1976. This Guinean Team went three times straight to the quarter-finals (2004, 2006, 2008) only to go out to bordering countries each time. In 2004 they lost 2-1 to Mali, in 2006 they lost 3-2 to Senegal and in 2008 they were defeated 5-0 by Côte d'Ivoire. After the team did not qualify for the 2010 World Cup, the minister of sports dissolved the team.[1]
