In a match against Group L, Greece’s Olympiacos striker Ricardo Gomes was the hero of the game by scoring both goals in seven minutes.
The first was in the 15 minutes, answering the best form a cross of Garry Rodrigues, after a good triangulation with Djaniny. In the 22nd minute, in an individual move of Djanniny, on the left side, Ricardo Gomes only had to push to the bottom of the Tanzanian goal, playing his leading role and “matador”.
During the first half, the stars of Kelimanjaro, a nickname for the Tanzanian national team, arrived only once at the rookie Thierry Graça’s goal through an offside shot from Mwana Samatta.
In the second half, after eight minutes, Ricard Gomes, the hero of the game, left injured to enter Nuno Rocha, which allowed the coach to strengthen the midfield and control the game.
From there, despite more possession from Tanzania, Cape Verde squandered two more blatant chances of goal for Djaniny and Garry Rodrigues.
To refresh the attack, Platiny surrendered Heldon, but would be the defender Stopira to make it 3-0, with a powerful head shot, after a corner kick scored by Garry Rodrigues.
By the end of the match, Cape Verde managed the game and allowed Bruno Leite to make his first internationalization, entering the place of Djaniny, who wasted some chances of goal.
With this victory, Cape Verde now has four points, the same as Uganda, who this Saturday at 16.00, faces Lesotho in Kampala.
Tanzania and Cape Verde meet again next Tuesday at Dar El Salam-National Stadium, this time counting for the fourth round.
