Interesting clash ahead as Mozambique and Cape Verde square off



In addition to sharing linguistic heritage, Cape Verde and Mozambique defied the odds when they opened their TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations, Cote d’Ivoire 2023, with impressive results against their more fancied opponents.


Cape Verde stunned a star-stunned Ghana 2-1, while Mozambique was unlucky not to win against tournament record holders Egypt, who snatched a late 2-2 draw.


The two sides meet on Friday, 19 January, in what promises to be a highly entertaining encounter between two sides who have shown up in Cote d’Ivoire.


A victory for Mozambique could see them make history by advancing from the tournament’s group stages for the first time, but a tactically sound Cape Verde will not make it easy for them.


This will be the first meeting between the two sides in the TotalEnergies CAF AFCON.


Cape Verde remains on three unbeaten matches against Mozambique (2 wins, one draw), all played in the qualifiers for the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations.
