Mendy, 27, who plays for Scottish League One club Alloa Athletic, stated that a win against Sudan in their first group game, will give Guinea-Bissau the confidence needed to face the Eagles and Egypt with the possibility of a positive result.
“Everyone knows we have a very tough group and we have Sudan in the first game,” Mendy was quoted on Scotsman.com.
“If we can win that game, then it will give everyone the confidence to try to do something against the biggest teams.
“Nothing is impossible in the tournament, anything can happen in football and we all believe we can do something good.”
And on coming up against one of the best forwards in world football, Mohamed Salah, Mendy expressed confidence of handling him.
He added:”I’m confident. He is one of the best players in the world, so he has the quality and I have mine – maybe he’s much better than me so I’ll just do my best and try to stop him. I have team-mates who are going to help me too.”
Mendy, who was born in Senegal was first called up to the Guinea-Bissau national team in March last year but has yet to earn a cap.
This will be Guinea-Bissau’s third appearance at the AFCON, after making their debut at the 2017 edition.
