YESTERDAY, I talked about Jose Zezinho’s brilliance on the ball and commanding presence in the Guinea Bissau team. I am pretty sure it’s the player many of you will talk about after the first 45 minutes of the Saturday game.

Zezinho’s marvelous display against Cranes in Bissau all but confirmed him as the jewel in the team. But he is by no means a one-man show in the team.

One of Guinea Bissau’s most dependable and ever-present key figures is Bocundji Ca.

The 24-year-old’s performances may not always stand out like Zezinho’s flamboyant movement around the pitch, but the midfield architect is the kind of player who performs like a machine rather than a showman, deceptively running in the background without hogging the spotlight.

Bocundji Ca is the brain and the lungs of this Guinea Bissau team that keeps the heart (Zezinho) constantly beating at astonishing rates.

Besides being a fine shooter from yards, he impressively hands attacking teammates the space to run in behind defenders.

The defensive midfielder has gathered immeasurable experience playing for French sides Nancy (53 appearances) and currently Tours where he has made 71 appearances so far.

His technique, vision and composure are there for all to see.
But if there is a player that can offer a two-in-one solution –that is towing with Bocundji Ca and frustrating him, it should be Mudde Musa.

In Bissau, Mudde’s ability to win and hold the ball away from Bocundji Ca and bring Tony Mawejje into play allowed the likes of Geoffrey Massa and David Obua space to torment Bissau’s central defenders Bacar Balde and Bruno Fernandes.

If Mudde performs just as he did in Bissau, it will leave his direct competitor Bocundji Ca trailing in his shadows.
