Two new call-ups for Cape Verde



Future Bafana Bafana opponents Cape Verde islands have called up former Swiss junior international Adilson Cabral and French-based Julio Tavares for their warm-up game against Ghana in Portugal.

Adilson has played for Switzerland at under-17 and under-20 but is now being offered a chance to continue his international career with the country of his birth.

Giant Tavares, also born in the Cape Verde but raised in France, has just come to prominence after being signed by Dijon, relegated to Ligue 2 last season. He signed from fourth division FC Bourg-Peronnas and has scored five goals in six games in Ligue 2 over the last three months. The 23-year-old was a veritable goal machine in the lower leagues.

Both are likely to debut against Ghana in Lisbon, in a match moved from Tuesday to Wednesday, as the ‘Tubaroes Azul’ prepare for the African Nations Cup finals, where they play the South African hosts in the opening match.

Coach Lucio Antunes also has defender Josimar Lima of Dutch club FC Dordrecht back but Ryan Mendes, Stopirra & Odair Fortes all miss the match at the Lisbon University field because of injury.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Fock (Batuque), Josimar Vozinha (Progresso Sambizanga, Angola)

Defenders: Carlitos (AEL Limassol, Cyprus), Fernando Varela (FC Vaslui, Romania), Gege (Marítimo, Portugal), Josimar Lima (FC Dordrecht, Netherlands), Nando (Chateauroux, France), Nivaldo (Académica Coimbra, Portugal), Pecks (Gil Vicente, Portugal), Ricardo (Paços de Ferreira, Portugal)

Midfielders: Adilson Cabral (FC Basle, Switzerland), Babanco (Olhanense, Portugal), David Silva (Olhanense, Portugal), Marco Soares (Omonia Nicosia, Cyprus), Ronny (CS Fola Esch, Luxembourg), Tony Varela (Sparta Rotterdam, Holland)

Strikers: Djaniny (Olhanense, Portugal), Heldon (Marítimo, Portugal), Júlio Tavares (Dijon, France), Zé Luís (Sporting Braga, Portugal).
