Angolan forward Jacinto Dala says they deserve to qualify for the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023 quarter-finals.
The Palancas Negras were unstoppable against Namibia as they defeated them 3-0, with Jacinto Dala getting involved in all three goals.
The forward won the TotalEnergies Man of the Match after the incredible display, his second so far.
Dala hailed the performance of his teammates and indicated that they deserved the qualification to the quarter-finals.
“We had a good performance today. The team deserved this qualification, and I’m thrilled we made it happen. I will say the commitment and the involvement of all the players helped me win this man of the match, he said.
The two goals mean Jacinto Dala has now scored four goals in the tournament and is just a goal away from being joint top goalscorer with Emilio Nsue of Equatorial Guinea.
“Scoring goals here is making me happy, and I would love to continue scoring goals in this tournament and getting victories as well,” he added.
