Cape Verde stun hosts and four-time World Cup finalists Tunisia 2-0 in Rades on Saturday to book their 2014 qualifier playoff spot.
The Islanders win sees them continue on what has been an unforgettable year in football.
Cape Verde stunned the continent at the 2013 Africa Cup when they reached the quarterfinals in South Africa in their debut tournament appearance before exiting at that stage via a 2-0 loss to Ghana.
Meanwhile, both the visitors’ goals came in the first half at Stade Olympique de Radès.
Platini put Cape Verde ahead in the 28th minute before Hilton sealed the visitors win in the 42nd minute.
Cape Verde sneaked into top spot from second with that win on 12 points, to relegated Tunisia to finish second best on 11 points in Group B.
