Guinea Bissau head coach Baciro Cande can dare dream of a place at the 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals following the win over Kenya’s Harambee Stars in the Sunday 27 March qualifying clash.
Guinea Bissau completed a double over Kenya, beating Harambee Stars 1-0 at the Nyayo National Stadium after an identical result in Bissau on Wednesday 23 March albeit in controversial fashion and Cande says his team can now set a target to grace the AFCON finals.
He lauded his charges for a fine display and with two matches remaining in the group stages he said he will be looking to build on the wins over Kenya in the bid to seal a slot at the tournament.
“I am happy with my team; these are just young boys brought together for the sake of the nation and I am very proud that they managed two wins over a very strong opponent like Kenya.
“We are now top of the group and with two matches remaining we can think about the dream. We want to build on this latest win as we head to the next game,” he said.
With the win Guinea Bissau went top of the group with seven points; one ahead of Zambia and Congo who they play in the final two qualifiers. Kenya is bottom with one point.
