Dominquez in Maputo for build-up



Mamelodi Sundowns winger Dominquez has joined up with his country’s preparations ahead of their do-or-die World Cup qualifier at home to Guinea at the weekend.

The key player, better known in South Africa as Elias Pelembe, had his first work out with the squad on Monday, Mozambican press reports said.

The squad will be complete on Tuesday when players from Liga Muculmana, who were competing in the African Confederation Cup in Nigeria, return home plus four European-based players return home to also join up with the Mambas preparations. They are Clesio (Benfica, Portugal), Mexer (Nacional, Portugal), Jumisse (Vaslui, Romania) and Telinho (Naval Maio, Portugal).

Mozambique plan five days of intense preparation until Friday, said their German-born coach Gert Engels. They will rest on Saturday before Sunday’s Group C game.

Mozambique are seeking their first win of the campaign after losing to Egypt and drawing at home with Zimbabwe in their first two matches, results that have left them bottom of the standings in the bid to qualify for the finals in Brazil.

Sunday’s match is at the Zimpeto Stadium outside of Maputo, the venue built for the hosting of last year’s All-Africa Games.
