Coach of Guinea-Bissau, Baciro Cande has stated that his side can only defeat Nigeria’s Super Eagles with luck.
Cande comment was made in at a press conference in Garoua ahead of their final Group D clash against Nigeria at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The chances of Guinea-Bissau qualifying for the next round are slim after they have gotten one point from two games, compared to Super Eagles who have already qualified as group winners.
For them to move to the round of sixteen, they have to defeat Nigeria on Wednesday, and earn the best third-place.
Speaking further, Cande while talking about other chances his team has, also noted that every top team has a weak side.
“Nigeria is one of the best teams in Africa. A very strong side. We will play our game and hope that Nigeria makes a mistake, some errors and maybe luck will smile on us.
“We know that no matter how strong a team is, there is always a weak side and we hope to capitalise on that,” Cande said.
