Football in the Cape Verde Islands is currently undergoing a restructuring phase, yet significant progress has already been made. For example, the national association is regularly participating in official international competitions. Notable successes have included a 2-1 victory over Togo in the qualifying competition for the African Cup of Nations, a win against Senegal in the Coupe Cabral 2002, and successful qualification for the finals of WAFU Cup in 2001. The Islands' most famous player is Carlos Alhinho, who played for Benfica, Sporting Lisbon, and FC Porto, before moving on to Spain and Belgium. He later coached the national team and various clubs in Angola and is today the coach of Al-Ahly in Qatar. Current top players include Dos Santos (Benfica Lisboa) and Brito (Leixoes, Portugal).
