Jonas Azevedo Mendes, the captain of Guinea Bissau’s national team and their first-choice goalie, declared that they would sooner ‘die’ than lose today’s encounter against the Super Eagles.
According to Mendes, the team’s main goalkeeper, he stated that they will be out in force to defeat the Super Eagles.
When questioned if there was a specific Eagles player they were aiming for, Mendes responded;
“we know Nigeria is a good team. It will be a mistake to target any particular player. We are facing all of them with equal attention.”
