Angola head coach, Pedro Goncalves says he has total respect for the Super Eagles but will try to exploit the team’s weakness.

The Palancas Negras will take on the Super Eagles in a quarter-final tie at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan on Friday.

The Three-time winners are the overwhelming favourites to win the game going by their pedigree on the continent.


Goncalves accepted the Super Eagles’ superiority but is confident they can exploit the weak link in their opponents.

“We respect Nigeria for everything they have done in African football. They are a powerful team. They have players playing in the Premier League and other top Leagues in the world.

“There is Victor Osimhen, who I voted for in the Ballon d’Or award and also Ademola Lookman.

“Lookman is having a fantastic season with Atalanta. He is one of their best players.

“Nigeria has found the best formation which is 3-4-3. The wingers have a good capacity to attack and defend. They have Ola Aina and Zaidu Sanusi in defence. I know Sanusi very well from FC Porto.

“We know Nigeria has a weakness which we will try to exploit. This is a big opportunity for us to make history.

“We are motivated to beat them. We will show the strength and power of Angolan people on the pitch.”
