Just a reminder 17 out of 27 players for Cape Verde this is their first Afcon. but they still managed to win.

@OfficialSitso remarked:

What Jordan is saying is so true but because it's Jordan saying it, people will hear it differently.

@_Pomasi added:

Your senior brother was 18 when he and his mates from 2009 u20 squad dragged us to final in Angolan. Experience is so overrated in sports. This team rather needs more fresh legs.
