Guinea-Bissau head coach, Baciro Cande, is not getting carried away with their victory over Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nation qualifier played in Abuja on Friday.

The gaffer said, his team have to move on quickly from the result and focus on the reverse fixture scheduled for Monday.

The Djurtus stunned the entire continent by beating Nigeria at the Moshood Abiola’s Stadium, courtesy of Mame Balde’s first-half strike.

Speaking ahead of the second game, Cande said they did a great job studying the strength and weakness of Super Eagles.

“We did a thorough analysis of the Super Eagles players and how the coach usually sets up his team and the boys did the rest by sticking to our game plan with resilience and determination.”

“It paid off with Balde scoring what proved to be the winner,” Cande said in his post-match press conference. The gaffer said they can repeat the feat in front of their home fans on Monday.

“For the second leg, we shall go back to plan how best to play Nigeria. Of course, we will be going for another victory.

“We still respect the Eagles despite our victory in Abuja on Friday,” he concluded.
