The Cape Verde football team has been doing well in the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) matches so far. They currently head Group B and are the only team in Groups A and B to have won both their matches. On Sunday 14 January they beat Ghana 2 – 1. Many of the Ghanaian players also play in well known UK and European clubs. Then on Friday 19 January Cape Verde beat Mozambique 3 – 0. On Monday 22 January they will play Egypt.
One of the stars of their games so far is the former Manchester United footballer, Bebé. Great success for someone who grew up in a homeless shelter. As one of the smallest countries in the competition, Cape Verde has done an amazing job so far. We wish them every success in their future matches.
The Africa Cup of Nations is taking place between 13 January and 11 February 2024. The AFCON games are being played in the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Ebimpé in the Côte d’Ivoire.
