Also Angola is an international stranger, but a team that throws Nigeria out
of the qualification has got quality.
Funny that at the World Cup Angola of all teams meets its former colonial power
So some Angolans earn there many in Portugal.
Star striker Mantorras of Benfica or Mateus of Gil Vicente e.g.
Skipper Akwa has goal instinct and has scored the decisive goal against
Nigeria in the qualification.
Coach Goncalves has formed a team that is strong defensively, but without
playmaker and more creativity in the midfield it won't be easy to score against
similar defensive strong teams like Mexico or Iran.
We rather predict the fourth place in group D.
The odds on Angola as world cup winner were naturally extremely high
- 301.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Angola you get 15.0.
