Portugal vs Cape Verde Island Match Preview
After disappointing World Cup elimination, the navigators are improving well. They have lost just a game in last 6 fixtures, but still secured top spot in Euro 2016 qualifiers Group I.
Only two matches have been played between these two sides. Out of those two meetings, Portugal have won one game, while the remaining game was goalless draw.
Veteran defender Ricardo Carvalho gave the hosts an early lead in Lisbon and though Nemanja Matic leveled proceedings just after the hour mark. Fabio Coentrao’s finish from close range saw A Seleccao claim a 2–1 win to go top of the table ahead of Denmark and Albania.
The navigators coach said “Everyone should realize the importance of this game. For a team that has just one point [Serbia] this is an absolutely crucial match. We expect Serbia to come here and try to win the match. I know the problems they can cause us and also their weaknesses, which I shall share with the players.”
