AFCON 2012 Saturday results

[Posted 04 Sep 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Ivory Coast opened their 2012 campaign with victory over Rwanda

In all the African Cup of Nations 2012 qualifiers played on Saturday across the continent, South Africa, Cameroon, Botswana, Cape Verde, Uganda, Cote devoire, all posted wins.

The general trend in Saturday's results was that home teams were victorius, save for visiting teams such as Cameroon who won on the road.

South Africa 2-0 Niger

Bafana Bafana dominated their home match against visiting Niger on Saturday night at the Mbombela stadium. As predicted by Beezsports.com, his is one match Bafana was expected to win by at least two goals given the great form the team has shown under new coach Pitso Mosimane.

Steven Pienaar, who played a subdued game at the World Cup under Carlos Alberto Parreira, had an outstanding performance at Mbombela and was correctly adjudged to have been the ABSA Man-of-the-match at the end of 90 minutes of play.

Pienaar, full of running and creative play through out the 81 minutes he was on the pitch, created South Africa's first goal. He dispossessed an opponent metres away from the centre circle, and quickly set-up Katlego Mphela, who did well to lobby his effort over a diving Losseiny Dounbia Issa in the 13th minute.

The dominant Bafana added a second goal in added time after the end of the first 45 minutes. The home team created numerous chances and squandered all the second half chances created through the brilliance of the lively Pienaar.

Bafana may leave to regret all the missed chances in this match. Niger might turn out to be the whipping boys of Group G, which comprises of Egypt  and Sudan, who are set to meet tomorrow. The good news for Mosimane though is that he has managed to collect three points on his first competitive match at home. His open play style has been such a breath of fresh air to South Africa.

Mauritius 1-3 Cameroon

The Indomittable Lions of Cameroon showed seriousness in dispatching the home team Mauritius 3-1 in Curepine on Saturday. The visitors scored through captain Samuel Eto'o's double in the 36th minute and early into the second half, with the third goal coming from Eric Choupo-Moting's penalty spot effort in the 60th minute.

The home team had equalised in the  40th minute through  Jonathan Bru, before Eto'o and Choupo-Moting put the matter beyond the reach of the hosts. 

Botswana 2-1 Togo

The Zebras continued theor fairy tale run in the 2012 afcon qualifiers in Group K, when they left it until late to score a 2-1 victory over visiting Togo. Botswana went into this match needing a draw to retain pole position in this group. They now lead the log standings with 11 points and it appears like they might have just done enough to secure a place at the Equatorial Guinea and Gabon 2012 afcon finals, either as runners up in Group K, or group leaders.

Joel Mogorosi had given the home team a lead in the 8th minute, before Floyd Ayite equalised for the visitors right from the second half whistle. Jerome Ramatlhakwane then stole the winner for the Zebras at the stroke of full time to torch wild celebrations across Botswana.

Two teams will qualify from Group K, which is made up of more teams than other groups in the afcon 2012 qualifying groups.

Uganda 3-0 Angola

Uganda must have surprised themselves with such an emphatic victory over their more fancied opponents in their group. Scotland-based midfielder David Obua opened the scoring in the 10th minute. Andrew Mwesigwa and Geofrey Serunkuma

Cote devoire 3-0 Rwanda

The Elephants overcame the challenge of Rwanda at home through goals from their mega-stars who are based in England. Even the absence of Chelsea's Didier Drogba did not save the Rwandese.

Yaya Toure of Manchester City opened the scring in the 11th minute, before Chelsea's Salomon Kalou increased the lead in the 19th minute. Emanuel Eboue of Arsenal then put the matter beyond doubt when he scored in the 40th minute to give the home team a three goal cushion going into half time.

The only surprising thing is that the Ivory Coast mega-stars failed to increase their tally after the interval and were frustrated by the Amavubi who were content with avoiding more damage by adopting a an ultra-defensive approach.
