The Cape Verde team first came to the attention of football fans worldwide during the 2013 African Cup of Nations. The side produced some exceptional results and made it as far as the quarter final stage. By 2015, the team had built on the performance to the extent that they delivered what is considered one of the biggest ever upsets in world football when they beat a full strength Portugal side 2-0.
Being able to see a surprise success team play in beautiful surroundings is the ideal holiday for any football fan. You can do exactly this when Cape Verde host Morocco at the Estadio Nacional de Cabo Verde on 23 March 2016. Morocco is considered to be one of the most consistently high performing football teams in Africa, so this Cup of Nations qualifying match is expected to be a fantastic contest.
