Guinea-Bissau coach Baciro Candé assured fans and delivered a 1-0 shocking win in Nigeria in their match day three African Cup of Nations Group A qualifier.

Following the Super Eagles’ uninspiring 1-0 loss to Guinea-Bissau in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja, Guinea-Bissua topped the group ahead of hosting Nigeria.

Mama Balde’s first halt goal secured a comfortable win for the Djurtus. As a result, boosted their qualification hopes of reaching the continental showpiece for a second consecutive time in Ivory Coast, having appeared at the delayed edition in Cameroon last year.

Under the supervision of coach José Peseiro, the Super Eagles have failed to win three straight games.

The three-time African champions suffered earlier friendly defeats at the hands of Algeria (2-1), Portugal (4-0) and Guinea Bissau 1-0.

Meanwhile, Guinea Bissau departed Nigeria immediately to continue preparation at home ahead of hosting Nigeria on Monday.
