After a goalless draw against South Africa, Mozambique tops group A and takes the group’s sole ticket for the 2021 U20 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Mauritania at the expense of host, South Africa who is second in the group.
Other group A opponent, Zimbabwe defeated Lesotho in another clash that saw Zimbabwe win 4-1.
However, South Africa and Zimbabwe couldn’t make a stake to the best losers spot the results against the teams that finish bottom in Groups A and B will be disregarded, providing a level playing field for the teams in Group C.
Angola took the ticket of Group C despite not playing on Tuesday.
This was due to Botswana’s 1-0 win over Eswatini left all three sides in the group on three points, which took head-to-head out of the equation.
Instead it was goal-difference that was the deciding factor and Angola’s +3 was better off than Eswatini (even) and Botswana (-3).
Group B matches will be played tomorrow as Zambia who needs just a point to take the group’s ticket play Malawi while Namibia play Comoros.
