The Blue Sharks handler also acknowledged the Super Eagles’ lineage and denied blaming anyone for Tuesday’s defeat.
According to senior national team coach Bobista, losing to Nigeria should not worry Cape Verde, who were frustrated with the timing of their goal.
After his team’s 1-1 draw in the opening match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Central African Republic, he was hoping to cage the Super Eagles.
However, they beat Granot Rohr’s men 2-1 at the Estadio Municipal Adreto Cena.
Because of the quality in the Nigerian squad, Blue Shark Handler is not ashamed of losing while saying that he will not blame anyone for the damage done to Mandela.
“Cape Verde doesn’t have to worry about losing to Nigeria,” Bobista told the media.
Nigeria is one of the best teams in Africa. We must have the courage and humility to know that Nigeria is also a very strong team and losing to Nigeria is not a bad thing.
“Our goal is always difficult. It was a shame because it happened at a time when we were handling the game, we refreshed the team.
“But it happens that we are not here to blame anyone individually. In our team, we always win together and lose together.
Cape Verde got off to a great start in the 19th minute through Dylan Dos Santos Towers – who beat goalkeeper Maduka Okoye offside trap before a non-stop shot.
The lead lasted only 10 minutes as Napoli star Victor Osman restored a near-parity after taking advantage of the hosts’ defensive crash.
The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations Kings emerged victorious in the final stages of the tough competition when Kenny Rocha Santos relinquished his position as goalkeeper Wozniacki after playing the ball into his team’s net.
After the defeat, Cape Verde finished third in Group C with just one point from two games played so far.
He will be hoping to keep his Qatar 2022 hopes alive when he faces Peter Butler Liberia in Monrovia on October 6.
After the match, they will focus on the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
