AFCON qualifiers: Tanzania draw with Algeria

Tanzania in action

Africa's so-called soccer minnows continue to hog the limelight as the battle for qualification for Equatorial Guinea and Gabon 2012 intensifies.

Tanzania became the latest less known African soccer team to surprise an African giant when they took a surprise lead away in Algeria last night against the hosts in an African Cup of Nations qualifying opening fixture in Group D .

Algeria had to come from behind to force a 1-1 draw at the Mustapha Tchaker Stadium in Blida.

The visiting Taifa stars played like a truly motivated side and attacked the hosts Algeria who are fresh from a World Cup tournament in South, right from the first whistle.

It was not surprising when Tanzania took an early lead in the 32nd minute through a thunderstrike from a free kick by Idrisa Rajabu.

Algeria who had a number of their well-known stars from Europe in their squad such as Majid Bougherra of Glasgow Rangers and Hassan Yebda of Napoli in Italy, hit back with a 40-yard wonder strike from Adlene Guedioura in the 30th minute.

The defeat will put pressure on veteran coach Rabah Saadane, whose team also failed to score a goal at the World Cup this year.

The other Group D match will feature Morroco who will host Central African Republic on Saturday night at the Prince Moulay Abdallah Sports Complex in Rabat.

Botswana were the first minnows to fire warning shots to the big boys of African football and make an early statement that there will be surprises in the AFCON qualifying groups in this campaign. The Zebras beat Tunisia away in Tunis in the opening match of Group K on 1 July.

Other surprise results included a 1-1 draw between Togo and Malawi on 9 July in Lome in the second match of Group K.

Other African superpowers face minnows in the AFCON qualifiers set for this weekend. Ghana is on the road to Swaziland this weekend.

African underachievers Mali and Zimbabwe will be battling it out with Cape Verde and Liberia in Group A, among many other qualifiers lined up for this weekend.
