Luanda - Angolan supporters are optimistic about a good performance of the national football squad in Wednesday's friendly against Estonia, in Portugal, ahead of the country’s participation in the African Nations Cup (CAN-2010) that Angola will host on January 10-31, ANGOP has learnt.

Januário Pedro, a civil servant, considers that the national squad will beat Estonia, in Angola’s penultimate preparation game, before facing Gambia to close this training programme.

On his turn, the journalist Moisés Silva said the players will play better than in the previous games, because at this time everyone fights for a place in the initial team.

He added that the Angolan squad are technically superior to Estonia’s and that the players coached by the Portuguese Manuel José will beat their opponents, even with some difficulty.

CAN-2010 is to take place in the cities of Luanda, Lubango, Cabinda and Benguela.
