Super Eagles Are Beatable, Says Cape Verde Coach, Bubista

Cape Verde coach, Pedro Leitao Brito Bubista has boasted that his team can upset the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Tuesday's 2022 World Cup qualifier.

The game which is billed to hold at the 5,000 seater Estadio Municipal Aderito Sena, Mindelo, will be the second meeting between the two West Africans after the Super Eagles forced the Blue Sharks to a 1-1 draw in a friendly in 2013.

Recall that Cape Verde are second in Group C after playing a 1-1 against Central Africa Republic (CAR) while Nigeria are top with three points after defeating Liberia 2-0 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

However, Bubista said that he's optimistic Cape Verde can get the three points against the Super Eagles.

“Obviously we want to be as strong as possible to look for the three points. As we create opportunities with the Central African Republic, we are confident that we will also be able to create with Nigeria and any other team. We always enter the field with a spirit of victory.”
