Slender margins cost Blue Sharks

Cape Verde coach Rui Aguas bemoaned the slender margins in football after their 2015 Africa Cup exit.

The Blue Sharks drew 0-0 with Zambia to exit the 2015 Africa Cup unbeaten on three points but pipped to a top two finish in Group B on goal difference by DR Congo.

"What can I say? For Congo it is happiness, for us it is the opposite," Aguas said.

"One missed goal makes all the difference and football is like this; unfair and cruel many times and unfortunately for us it was our turn."

Cape Verde had scored just one goal in the tournament after finishing 1-1 with Group B winners Tunisia in their opening game on January 18 before picking up scoreless results against DR Congo and Zambia.
