Cape Verde trying to enjoy moment at African Cup
DURBAN, South Africa (AP) -With a chance to reach the quarterfinals in their first appearance at the African Cup of Nations, Cape Verde's players are just trying to enjoy their already successful campaign.
The team from the tiny islands off western Africa earned improbable draws in its first two matches, moving into position to advance from Group A. The first draw was against host South Africa and the second against powerhouse Morocco.
Cape Verde captain Fernando Neves says it would be an incredible achievement to reach the last eight, but the team just needs to "play and enjoy.''
He says "we do not feel any pressure because we came here to enjoy the moment.''
