CAN 2015: Cape Verde's Team Profile

AFCON 2015: Cape Verde's Squad list, Qualifying recap, History

January 9, 2015 By Mutembei Kevin
Cape Verdeans can afford to be optimistic for their national team at this year's AFCON. Football-wise, the country has come a long way since their first international game in which they lost 3-0 to Guinea Bissau.

The Blue Sharks, as the team is called, have made just one appearance in the competition. This was in 2013, when they went as far as the quarter finals after shocking Cameroon 3-2 over two legs. The island country is ranked 7th in the most recent CAF FIFA rankings behind Algeria, Cote d'Ivoire, and Tunisia. On the world stage, FIFA ranks them at 40.

How Cape Verde qualified for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations

In the qualifiers for the 2015 showdown, Cape Verde became the first of two nations (along with Algeria) to qualify. They did this in great style, thrashing Niger 3-1 at home and winning Group F with a match to spare. New manager José Rui Lopes Águas, who took the post in July 2014, will look to marshal his men forward and write his name in Cape Verdean football history.

Cape Verde's AFCON 2015 roster

Goalkeepers: Kevin Sousa, Ivan Cruz, Josimar Dias
