Mauritania progress despite loss to Liberia

Despite losing 1-0 to Liberia in the second leg of their 2018 African Nations Championship qualifier at the Stade Municipal Zouérate on Sunday, Mauritania still progressed to the next stage of qualifying.

The first leg between the two nations ended 2-0 in favour of Mauritania at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Monrovia last weekend thanks to goals from Mohammed Yaly Dellahi and Boubacar Bagili.

That result combined with Liberia’s 1-0 win on Sunday, July 23 handed Mauritania a 2-1 aggregate win over the two legs.

Liberia’s goal on Sunday was scored by Jachso, but it was not enough to save them from exiting the qualifying for CHAN 2018.

Mauritania will now face Mali in the final phase of qualification to reach CHAN 2018 in Kenya.

Mali reached the next stage of the qualifying process by beating Gambia 4-0 on aggregate.
