African friendly results on 17 Nov

[Posted 18 Nov 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
USA scored a 1-0 victory over SA against the run of play in the Mandela Challenge

A few African teams sought to utilise the FIFA date for international friendlies yesterday to fine-tune for the Africa Nations Cup 2012 qualifiers set to resume end of February to beginning March 2011. Here are the few matches and results.

South Africa 0-1 USA

What a painful way of losing at home! South Africa dominated much of the match yesterday in the Nelson Mandela Challenge match against the visiting USA. However, Bafana Bafana found a bus parked in the USA midfield and were forced to toil with the ball in their own half for much of the first half. Despite this, Bafana were brave enough to carve the experiemental USA defence open on a number of occasions, even in the 1st half.

New boy Davide Somma of Leeds United in England's Championship, was a thorn in the flesh for the Americans. In the 10th minute, Somma found his way past two USA defenders, and appeared to have been brought down by defender Clarence Goodson and suprisingly, Kenyan referee Sylvester Kirwa waved play on. Somma returned to haunt the USA four minutes later, with a superb pass to Anele Ngcongca, but the right back's shot was saved by keeper  Brad Guzan.

The 55 000 fans at the Cape Town stadium wwere shocked into silence when against the run of play, USA burst into Bafana's goal and the 17 year old Juan Agudelo poked the ball into the net in the 85th minute. That goal and unexpected USA victory gave a feeling of injustice to the manner that Bafana had battled and outplayed the USA through out the match. The USA have now won the Challenge Cup twice, having beaten SA by an identical scoreline in the 2007 edition of the cup.

Mozambique 1-3 Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwe Warriors finally remembered how to be real Warriors when they beat Mozambique into submission at the Maxaquene Stadium in Maputo, Mozambique. The opening goal came from none other than Kaizer Chiefs' wonder-boy Knowledge Musona who intercepted a back pass between keeper and defender to give Zim a 1-0 lead. Nyasha Mushekwi, the red-hot Mamelodi Sundowns striker scored a brace in the 2nd half to give Zimbabwe a 3-0 lead before Carvalho scored a consolation for the hosts in injury time.

Mali 3-1 DR Congo

In response to their next opponents in Group A of the 2012 qualifiers, Zimbabwe, (who beat Mozambique 3-1), Mali dominated play in their 3-1 win over DR Congo in France late yesterday.

Mali scored through Mdibo Maiga, Abdou Traore and Tenema, with DR Congo getting their consolation towards end of the match.

Guinea 1- 2 Burkina Faso

After beating Nigeria in their last Group B AFCON 2012 qualifiers in October, everybody expected Guinea to stroll past Burkina Faso in yesterday's friendly match played in Paris, France. But Burkina Faso had other ideas. They won a very entertaining match where no team had home advantage. Both teams used the match to fine tune for their upcoming qualifiers. 

Malawi 2-1 Rwanda

The home team had to come from behind after falling to an early strike by the visiting Rwandese. Frank Banda and Victor Nyirenda replied for the Flames to give Malawi a much needed home victory at Kamuzu Banda Stadium in Blantrye.

Gabon 1-2 Senegal

One of Africa's teams of the moment Senegal, were forced to dish out some of their best attacking football, following the stubborn Gabon's 29th minute lead in Paris yesterday. Pierre Emerick Aubemeyang gave the Gabonese the lead. Papiss Cisse then levelled for the Teranga Lions in the 44th minute to give the teams everything to play for in the last 45 minutes. Issiar Dia of Fernebahce in Turkey then gave the Senegalese a 2-1 lead in the second half. 

Ghana 0-0 Saudi Arabia

Ghana's woes infront of goals continued in yesterday's home friendly against Saudi Arabia. AC Milan ace Kevin Prince Boateng was reportedly marvelous to watch in midfield but still the Black Stars of Ghana failed to break down the resolute Saudi defence.

Asamoah Gyan of Sunderland, who is enjoying a rich vein of form in England, played as a lonely striker in a very frustrating system for strikers employed by Ghana.
