Coach of Guinea-Bissau, Baciro Cande has said his side can only defeat Nigeria’s Super Eagles with luck.
He said this at a press conference in Garoua ahead of their final Group D clash against Nigeria at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Super Eagles have already qualified as group winners, but Cande’s men only have one point from two games.
Their hope for qualification as best third-place lies on defeating Nigeria in Wednesday’s game.
The Guinea-Bissau coach raised the hopes of his side noting 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.
