Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde will trade tackles at the TBS Stadium in an international friendly fixture on Thursday.

Cape Verde come into this game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Senegal in another friendly. Idrissa Gueye and Sadio Mane scored second-half goals to give the Teranga Lions the victory.

Guinea-Bissau have not been in action since securing a 3-0 home victory over Congo in their final Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in March.

That victory helped the Djurtus secure qualification to AFCON 2021 by virtue of their second-place finish in Group I.

Cape Verde also finished second in Group F to guarantee their participation in a third AFCON tournament.
