Africa Nations Cup Results: Mali's narrow win

[Posted 10 Oct 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Mali narrowly beat Liberia 2-1 in Bamako

Mali recovered from their shock loss to Cape Verde away in September to narrowly beat visiting Liberia 2-1 in Bamako on Saturday night in a  Group A of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations match.

The Carthage Eagles opened scoring as early as the 2nd minute through double scorer Abdou Traore. Liberia refused to be cowed by the vociferous crowd of fans in Bamako and hit back with Theo Lewis Weeks for an equaliser just before the end of the first half.

The Bordeaux man, Traore, who is on loan at fellow Ligue 1 club Nice, scored the winner for the Malian Eagles' in the 52nd minute.

Liberia failed to find the all important equaliser as Mali frustrated them with close ball control until the last whistle.

Mali have rekindled their chances of winning Group A for an automatic qualification for the AFCON finals to be co-hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon in January 2012.

In the other match in Group A, group leaders Cape Verde are away to Zimbabwe this Sunday and will be hoping to steal a point in Harare and remain top of the group.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, are hoping to collect maximum points against the Blue Sharks and replace them as group leaders.

The Warriors showed their seriousness for this match by calling 23 foreign based players for the crunchy tie against Cape Verde.

Zimbabwe will be hoping to put behind them the cloud of uncertainty which troubled their camp following the 'deportation' of their Belgian coach Tom Saintfeit earlier this week for working without requisite work permit papers.

In the absence of Saintfeit, the team will be co-coached by two assistant coaches, who include Norman Mapeza who guided the team to a credible 1-1 draw against Liberia in Monrovia on 5 September, and another former Warriors star Madinda Ndlovu.
