2023 AFCONQ: We Gave Our Best Against ‘Top Team’ Super Eagles  –Sao Tome Forward,  Cardoso

Sao Tome and Principe forward Ricardo Cardoso says the True Patriots gave their best against the Super Eagles in Sunday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Adriano Eusebio’s side went down to a 6-0 defeat against the Super Eagles at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Sunday.

Sao Tome and Principe were pummelled 10-0 in the reverse fixture by the Super Eagles.

Cardoso said they fought hard against the Super Eagles despite the outcome of the game.

” Nigeria have a good team, they have good players in the Premier League and other big leagues. It was difficult to play against them but we did our best,” the striker told the media after the game.

“We really love the ambience at the stadium. It was a good experience for me and my teammates.”

    Good and honest statements. It is nice to be gracious in defeat. A seasoned analyst would agreed that these Nigerian boys are unstoppable based current forms. Nigerians are naturally optimistic that they could win the AFCON this time. To see Osimhen, Awo, Samu, Lookman, boniface in action today was an earthly reviling to behold. To play in that stadium today was an added and unique experience according to this captain. We Nigerians could not agree more. This is the best stadium in Africa today.

    After having gotten remarkable results and performances in the past in Uyo, i wonder why people in their right senses would move our games to other places that do not even have a quarter of the facilities found in the uyo Stadium. A foreigner has just attested to the quality of the uyo stadium which apparently stands to be one of the best in Africa and the world. And our Evil administrators decided to play politics with our football by moving crucial games (including world cup qualifiers) to useless stadia around the country. All in a bid to enrich themselves and sabotage the progress of the team. Our problem is actually not knowing what to do but knowing what to do and do otherwise for selfish evil reasons. They sabotaged our world cup qualifiers and sabotaged rohr ( though the latter outwitted them at their evil schemes). Everybody could literally feel the ambience of the uyo satdium from their devices. The players on their part were able to express themselves as well bcs of the quality of turf They were playing on. This really boosted their confidence and style of play even though the game was against a lower quality side but still we could see flashes of brilliance and coordination in their style of play. This is what happens when the right things are done. And for osimhen , pls, caf should just give him Africa’s best award on a platter bcs as it appears now, He’s unstoppable. There’s no one on the continent fit enough to compete the title with him.
