The Blue Sharks of Cabo Verde Islands will arrive Cameroon on Thursday afternoon for their 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers clash against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

Coach Pedro Brito and his squad will fly into Yaoundé in the evening of Thursday via a chartered flight take to their base ahead of the match day three qualifiers clash of the top guns in pool D.

The Blue Sharks in their first competitive outing since after an impressive run in the AFCON will. Cape Verde will back themselves to stun the Indomitable Lions, keen to capitalise on the evident disarray and disunity in the Central African nation, as they could leapfrog the giants by securing maximum points.

Bubista’s troops have hitherto avoided losing after two rounds of qualifying and have doubly impressed by keeping consecutive clean sheets against Angola (0-0) and Eswatini (2-0).

A third shutout on the trot could be a long shot for the Blue Sharks, whose ambition to participate in their maiden World Cup finals has been improved by the issues in Cameroon’s camp.

Indeed, Bubista’s men have a sample size of results that gives them a chance in Yaounde, underscored by a strong AFCON showing in Cote d’Ivoire. The Blue Sharks were not beaten in 90 minutes of any encounter but could not get past Ronwen Williams’ goalkeeping clinic in the quarter-final penalty shootouts as they proved their mettle against opponents of different profiles.

Saturday presents Cape Verde with an opportunity for a huge scalp, and they hope to show the best version of themselves against Africa’s most experienced side on the world stage.
