AFCON 2023: Ghana vs Cape Verde Live Stream

AFCON 2023: Ghana vs Cape Verde Live Stream. The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations kicks off this Sunday, January 14th with a highly anticipated Group B match between four-time champions Ghana and giant-killer Cape Verde. This opening match pits two teams with starkly contrasting recent tournament fortunes and expectations.

For heavily favored Ghana, this AFCON presents an opportunity to recapture past glory after underwhelming recent showings. The Black Stars failed to advance from the group stage in 2019 despite their soccer pedigree. They also struggled mightily in World Cup qualifying under manager Chris Hughton.

With just 3 wins in their last 8 matches, Ghana enters this tournament lacking momentum. Fans expect more from a team that once dominated African football in the 2010s. Their last AFCON title came in 1982.

Meanwhile, Cape Verde arrives with little pressure but loads of belief. Though underdogs, they’ve proven adept at AFCON upsets. In 2013, they stunned the field by reaching the quarterfinals in their debut. They advanced from the group stage again in 2021 before falling to eventual champions Senegal.

Led by midfielders Kenny Rocha and Jamiro Monteiro, Cape Verde will look to absorb early pressure from Ghana and pounce on the counter. Their solid defensive shape could frustrate the Black Stars.

Of course, Ghana still boast the more talented squad overall, led by midfielders Thomas Partey and Daniel-Kofi Kyereh. If they dictate possession and tempo, their quality should prevail.

But Cape Verde has all the ingredients of a classic AFCON spoiler. They’ll be eager to spring the first major shock of the tournament.

Fans can watch the pivotal Group B opener live on fuboTV and beIN Sports this Sunday, with kickoff set for 11am EST/8am PST. Get ready for AFCON 2023 to begin with a bang.
