“Last time we played Nigeria we had some problems, we couldn’t get our best players and had to use new players and I can promise that at the long run we will be better,” Cardoso was quoted on Brila FM.

“We know each other now and I think we were better than the last time, we showed you guys we can play as well. Nigeria is a big team with top players who feature in top clubs unlike us, we only have one player in a first division.
