Guinea-Bissau Goalie: We Believe We Can Beat Nigeria

Guinea-Bissau goalkeeper Jonas Mendes believes they can win their first game in the history of the Africa Cup of Nations final tournament when they face Nigeria Wednesday evening at the Roumdé Adjia Stadium in Garoua.

Mendes knows that victory against Nigeria may either secure their passage to the next round going by the result of the other group match between Egypt and Sudan at the same time, or as one of the best third-placed teams in the groups.

”We know that the opponent is strong, but we trust in ourselves and nothing is easy, but we will make every effort and it is important to get the first victory and we hope to achieve it in tomorrow’s match.

”The last match was difficult for us, but we are professional players who know how to overcome difficult moments and prepare for what is to come, especially as we strive to make our country and our fans happy,’ said the 32 year old who plays his football with S.C. Beira-Mar in the third division of Portuguese football.
