Cape Verde Secures Surprise Win in AFCON 2023 Group, Beating Mozambique with Bebe’s Stunning Goal. Cape Verde, ranked 73rd globally, unexpectedly tops Group B ahead of Egypt and Ghana.

Despite being the underdogs, the Blue Sharks have clinched their last-16 spot. Bebe, who switched from Portugal, scored a 40-yard free-kick.

The win puts Cape Verde in a strong position to face a third-placed finisher in the knockout stage. Mozambique, currently 111th in FIFA rankings, faces a tougher path but could still advance with a win over Ghana.

The result adds to Cape Verde’s impressive AFCON history, reaching the last 16 in three of their four appearances.
