2015 AFCON: Congo Edging Rwanda, Eye Nigeria Clash

2015 AFCON: Congo Edging Rwanda, Eye Nigeria Clash

Nigeria’s Super Eagles will not be in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers until September but there were a couple of games played on Saturday and Sunday across the continent.

Lesotho, Congo and Benin will all take leads into the second legs of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying ties after wins on Sunday.

Bushy Moletsane’s goal midway through the second half was enough to give Lesotho a narrow 1-0 home victory over Kenya in Maseru.

The return leg of their second qualifying round tie takes place in Nairobi in two weeks’ time and Lesotho will be wary of Kenya’s strong home record, which has seen them go over a year – and seven games – unbeaten on home soil.

Congo, though, can be more confident of reaching the next phase of qualifiers to the 2015 Cup of Nations finals when they will confront the Super Eagles and South Africa after they beat Rwanda 2-0 in Point-Noire, courtesy of late goals from Cesaire Gandze and Ferebory Dore.

Benin have captain Stephane Sessegnon to thank for their 1-0 home win over Malawi as the West Brom star scored the only goal of the game after 19 minutes.

And in Sunday’s other qualifying clash, Mozambique left it late to snatch a 2-2 draw in their first leg in Tanzania.

Domingues had given Mozambique the lead with a penalty three minutes after half-time, only for Tanzania’s Khamis to turn the game on its head with a quick-fire double.

However, Isac had the final say, scoring in the 89th minute to ensure Mozambique will begin their home leg in Maputo on level terms.

  • Since FIFA has lifted the ban placed on Nigeria, the Nigeria football federation should start early preparation in order to be able to raise a solid tactical and credible team to defend the cup won by Steven. Keshi and the gallant boys. It will uplift our soccer prowess in the global village if nigeria wins the nation cup back to back

  • We thank God that fifa has lifted ban on Nigeria, Now I suggest to chose another tribe to be our coach now, Keshi as done grate let another come,He has tried to bring Ibos out more than other tribe we have only Hausa which is Musa and 3 yorubas two were used,Azize was denied to play by Mikel Obi so lets try another tribe, In 23 players only 4 from other tribe rest are Ibos

  • It wud av been so good if NFF aren’t bn myopic
