Guinea-Bissau head coach Baciro Cande has backed the Super Eagles to win the title at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Cande’s side lost 1-0 to Nigeria on Monday night, ending their campaign at the AFCON 2023 finals on a disappointing note.

Opa Sangante’s 36th minute own goal gave the Super Eagles maximum points in the keenly contested encounter.

The Super Eagles have struggled to impress so far in the competition and are yet to convince many they have what it takes to win a fourth title.

Cande is however convinced their fellow West Africans can go all the way in Cote d’Ivoire.

‘”Nigeria have a good team, a lot of quality players including Victor Osimhen who is Africa’s best player,” Cande said during his interaction with the media after the game.

“It is a team I know very well and I believe they will go far in this competition.

“I believe they can win it. They are now among the favourites.”
