We will attack Nigeria where it hurts – Baciro Candé Guinea-Bissau coach

Guinea-Bissau head coach Baciro Candé has vouched to attack Nigeria where it will hurt when both teams face-off in their last Group D encounter on Wednesday.

Nigeria already through to the next round and could rest players but Guinea-Bissau who must win to stand any chance of progression have their plans.

So far, Bissau have one point from two games and must beat Nigeria before they can be considered as one of the three best losers who will advance to the next round.

They drew against Sudan in their first game and were unlucky not to get a point against Egypt as their late equalizer was controversially ruled out.

With their fates now in their hands, the Djurtus head coach has said he will do everything to get the desired result against Nigeria.

“Nigeria team is a strong team but we will try to play our game. In football we just need to believe in ourselves and fight for what we believe we will focus on ourselves,” Candé told a press conference on Tuesday.

“Of course, we will try and take the game to Nigeria and with a little bit of luck we could win the game.

“Everyone know Nigeria is one of the best teams in Africa because of their quality but we will play our game. In every strong team there is a weakness.”

Nigeria will play Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday 8pm Nigerian time at the Stade Roumde Adjia.
