Equatorial Guinea coach Juan Micha applauded his side’s “complete performance” after thrashing Guinea-Bissau 4-2 at the Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday.
A sensational Emilio Nsue hat-trick fired Equatorial Guinea to victory in the Group A clash, putting them on the verge of the knockout stage.
“I am very happy, we had a complete victory,” said Micha after the emphatic triumph in Abidjan, adding: “I want to congratulate my team, we played at a good level and won in satisfying fashion.”
He added: “I tell them we must behave well because we are the representatives of our country and have to give a good image.”
On facing hosts Ivory Coast in their next fixture with the team needing a point to qualify for round of 16, Micha said: “We know it’s a big competition and we have to do better than what we are doing now. We have one foot in the next round but will approach Ivory Coast with the same desire and intensity to win.”
