Liberia beat Cape Verde-Group A wide open!

Liberia beat Cape Verde-Group A wide open!

The Lone Star of Liberia choked up an interesting 1-0 win against visiting Cape Verde, pace-setters in Group A, to open wide the group and increase Zimbabwe's chances of making a belated charge towards qualifications.

More importantly for Liberia, the win means that the Lone Star retains a mathematical chance of making it to the finals to be co-hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea in 2012.

Francis Doe scored on 36 minutes to give Liberia a 1-0 victory in the capital Monrovia to make Group A one of the most interesting groups is not the most, in the 2012 AFCON qualifiers.

Here are the interesting statitics following results of matches played in Group A.



  • Only 3 points seperate the bottom team Liberia from the top team Cape Verde, who sit aloft with 7 points, while the Lone Star have moved their points tally to 4.


  • Each of the four teams in Group A are seperated by just a single point, from top to bottom.


  • Cape Verde are 1st with 7 points, Mali are 2nd with 6 points, Zimbabwe are 3rd with 5 points, and Liberia anchor the log on 4th place with 4 points


  • Each of the teams in Group A have suffered a loss away from home. Cape Verde suffered their first loss today (0-1) away in Liberia. Mali have suffered two losses thus far, 0-1 away loss to Cape Verde and a 1-2 away loss to Zimbabwe today. Zimbabwe themselves have lost once to Mali (0-1) under what the Zimbabweans believed were controversial circumstances, and Mali will surely feel entitled to make the same complaints. Liberia have lost twice, narrowly falling 1-2 away to Mali in Bamako before capitulating 2-4 to Cape Verde in their last match before Sunday's triumph at home.

In the upcoming matches, Zimbabwe will still be at home against Liberia on 3 September, and on the same date, Mali will entertain Cape Verde in what promise to be intriguing fixtures.

Mali v Cape Verde will certainly be pick of the crop in Group A, and a draw is a possible result. A win will definitely see the Eagles of Mali ascend to the summit of Group A, despite any result in Harare.

Other permutations are that should a draw be the result of the Bamako match on 3 September, and Zimbabwe secure a victory over Liberia, Zimbabwe will assume leadership in Group A.

This is how tricky Group A has become. There is everything to play for for everyone.
