Big Names Don’t Play Football, G’Bissau Coach Mocks Eagles

Head coach of Guinea-Bissau, Baciro Cande, has fired a salvo at the Super Eagles after his side’s shock 1-0 victory over the three-time African champions in Abuja on Friday in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The Wild Dogs recorded one of the biggest upsets in African football with a 1-0 win over the hosts and favourites at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, as fans watched in disbelief, another horrible display by the Eagles under Portuguese coach Jose Peseiro.

Cande, while speaking at the post-match press conference, said his deserved the win despite the array of “big names” paraded by the Nigerians.

“This victory is for the Guinea-Bissau people, we respect all the Nigerian players, but big names don’t play football on the pitch.

“They (Eagles) tried to do everything to beat us and created many scoring chances, but we deserved to win,” Cande said.

“We are very happy about today’s (Friday) victory and the boys did a very good job. The result is very important for us and the Guinea-Bissau people.”

Cande, however, admitted the result shocked his team.
