Roberto Lopes Pico (Man of The Match)
“We managed to stand up to an excellent Cameroonian team who play well on the ball. It’s a personal title that could have been awarded to any other player and I’m happy to get it”.
Antonio Conceiçao (Cameroon coach)
“We achieved our first goal which was qualification in the next round. We wanted to finish the group stage with a victory, but the Cape Verde team was good and did not allow us that. Now we have to prepare well the round of 16 here in Olembe with more recovery. Against Cape Verde, the game was centered in the midfield, but on our side, we played the depths with opportunities without however managing to worsen the mark”.
Humberto Bettencourt (Cape Verde assistant coach)
“This game meant a lot to me and my team, because we knew it was going to be a difficult game against the host country. We managed a positive result even though we wanted to end this group stage with a victory. Our game plan has succeeded today”.
