Mozambique draw with Tanzania



A last minute goal by Isac Carvalho dimmed Tanzania’s Morocco 2015 Africa Cup of Nations dreams after finishing 2-2 with visiting Mozambique in a second round, first leg qualifier.

The match also marked Tanzania coach Mart Nooij’s reunion with Mozambique, whom he coached between 2007 and 2011 and led to their fourth Afcon appearance in 2010 in Angola where they made a first round exit.

Sadly, it would be a reunion the Dutchman would rue after the Maxaquene winger denied him a precious first leg win.

And Mozambique’s away draw at the National Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam on Sunday ensured The Mambas head into the final leg in a fortnight’s time as favourites to advance to the group stage in September.

Meanwhile, all four goals in Dar-es-Salaam came after the break but it was Tanzania who were made to work hard at home after Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Domingues put the Mambas ahead from the penalty spot in the 47th minute.

That lead lasted for at least 19 minutes before Azam midfielder Khamis Mcha claimed the hosts nerves with the equaliser in the 66th minute.

Mcha completed his brace in the 72nd minute from the penalty spot as the Taifa Stars were looking like finally ending their four-match Africa Cup qualifying bogey at the hands of Mozambique.

But Carvalho had the last say with a stoppage time equaliser to seetThe Mambas pick up a precious away draw to take into the final leg on August 2 in Maputo.

The result has left Tanzania still searching for that elusive win over the Mambas in an Africa Cup qualifier with one defeat and two draws at home.

Winner over both legs of the second round tie will advance to Group F for an away date against Zambia in Ndola on September 6.
