Djaniny Tavares has helped spark Santos Laguna to the Liga MX Liguilla semifinals.

TORREON, Mexico -- Only one player from Africa has ever won Mexico's first division title, but Santos Laguna's Djaniny Tavares is hoping that number will double in coming days.

The 24-year-old Cape Verde international is about to complete a year since signing for Los Guerreros and, while Mexico isn't exactly a well-trodden path for African talent, Djaniny has been impressing of late, netting a fine winner in the Clausura 2015 quarterfinal against Tigres last Sunday.

Cape Verde's journey from potential to promise completed with Portugal win

Cape Verde's 2-0 win in Portugal on Tuesday will be remembered for years to come.
Cape Verde's 2-0 win in Portugal on Tuesday will be remembered for years to come.

People come of age when they move from adolescence to adulthood, but for sports teams that journey is a little more complicated. Theirs is not so much about growing up as it about getting better, which is why Cape Verde's passage from potential to real promise was completed on Tuesday night.

They beat hosts Portugal 2-0 to move from colonised to conquerors. Although the fine print will reveal that the Islanders overcame a second-string Portuguese side with a debutant goalkeeper, and who were...

Fernando Santos: Portugal distracted during shock Cape Verde Islands loss

Portugal coach Fernando Santos said that his strategy "decided the match" as his team beat Serbia 2-1 in the 2016 European Qualifiers Group I.

And Cape Verde Islands made them pay as first-half goals from Odair Fortes and Gege sealed a surprise win for the visitors at the Estadio Antonio Coimbra da Mota.

Portugal's misery was compounded when...

Cape Verde were eliminated after failing to score against Zambia.

The point from a goalless draw at the Estadio de Ebebiyin was not enough to secure Cape Verde a place in the last eight of the African Nations Cup, while 2012 champions Zambia also bowed out.

Had Tunisia beaten the Democratic Republic of Congo in the other Group B decider, Cape Verde would have progressed with their three points from three draws, but it instead finished 1-1 in Bata and DR Congo therefore reached the quarterfinals based on goals scored.
