The Equatorial Guinea goalkeeper was promised Michael Jackson’s gloves if he wins the African Cup of Nations

Equatorial Guinea is in the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations, partly thanks to the work of Jesús Owono, the goalkeeper of the African team. His country’s vice president, Teddy Nguema, promised Owono Michael Jackson’s gloves if they win the Cup.

“The results of the National ‘Nzalang’ have us all euphoric, but I want to focus on our young goalkeeper, Jesús Owono. If Equatorial Guinea wins the CAN, I will give him one of Michael Jackson’s gloves for his impressive work during the competition”, tweeted Teddy Nguema, vice president of the country.

Owono was the protagonist of the round of 16 after he saved two penalties in the shootout against Mali that took them to the next phase. Until now, Equatorial Guinea has not received goals and has stopped the six shots that have been finished off.

He has also saved both penalties in the shootout against Mali, and also saved one in the 85th minute against Sierra Leone, for what the Alavés goalkeeper has become the figure of the national team.

This Saturday Cameroon advanced to the semifinals of the African Cup of Nations after eliminating Gambia 2-0 and Burkina Faso defeated Tunisia 1-0. This Sunday will be the other two games: Egypt against Morocco, and Senegal against Equatorial Guinea.

The semifinals will be held between next Wednesday, February 2 and Thursday, February 3, and the final will be next Sunday, February 6.
