Angola win against Swallows



Angola beat Moroka Swallows 2-1 in a warm-up match in Soweto on Thursday, concluding their penultimate preparatory game before the kick off of the African Nations Cup finals.

Swallows took the lead in the match at the Dobsonville Stadium after 24 minutes through Lwazi Skosana but the Angolans, who play in South Africa’s group at the upcoming continental championship, came back to win in the second half.

Swallows used the match to test former Jomo Cosmos and Mamelodi Sundowns defender Thapelo Tshilo and also gave a run out to former Bafana Bafana internationals Joseph Makhanya and MacBeth Sibaya.

It was only the second day back at training for the struggling Birds.

Palancas Negras played two different teams in each half to give as many of the squad players a run out and equalised in the 58th minute through Guilherme Afonso, the former Swiss junior international who is on his first call-up to the team.

Manucho Dinis got the game’s winner with just two minutes remaining.

Angola will have a final warm-up against Botswana at Dobsonville on Sunday.

The hastily arranged international comes after matches against Rwanda, the Gambia and Cameroon’s under-23 side in December and a 2-0 win over Nations Cup holders Zambia last weekend in Johannesburg.
