Cape Verde head coach Pedro Leitao Brito has expressed his satisfaction with his players despite their elimination in the race for the 2022 World Cup qualifying playoff.
The Blue Sharks needed to secure the three points to stand a chance of qualifying for the next round while a draw was a enough for the Eagles.
With just one minute on the clock, Cape Verde went behind through a Victor Osimhen goal.
But just five minutes later, Cape Verde equalized thanks to Stopira who slotted home a corner kick.
All efforts to get the decisive goal proved abortive as the Eagles held.
Despite failing to advance, Leitao Brito praised his players for giving their all.
“It was a tough game we did everything possible to win but unfortunately it didn’t happen,” he said after the game.
“My players gave their best and I’m happy with their performance. It is the game, that’s football for you.“
And what the future holds for his team:“We want to grow up in our football. It’s a small country but we have good players and we will surely be there.”
