We Rather ‘Die’ Than To Lose To Super Eagles – Guinea Bissau Captain

Captain of the Guinea Bissau national team, Jonas Azevedo Mendes has said that they will rather ‘die’ than see themselves losing today’s match against the Super Eagles.

Mendes, who is the team’s first-choice goalkeeper said they will battle the Super Eagles with all their might and they were determined to ensure they do not go home after the tie.

Asked if there was any particular player in the Eagles team they were targeting, Mendes said, “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,” he said.

Raised in Portugal, the goalkeeper once played for Beira-Mar, in the Primera Liga but has spent most of his playing career in the third tier of Portuguese football.

Guinea Bissau has been a revelation in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
