Angola kept their hopes of qualifying for the 2015 CAF Africa Cup of Nations alive when they defeated Lesotho 4-0 in their Group C encounter at the Estádio 11 de Novembro in Luanda on Wednesday night.

Two first half goals from Bastos and Ary Papel gave the hosts the advantage before a Lesotho own-goal and a fourth goal from Love Cabungula completed the rout.

The Palancas Negras went into the game needing to end their three-match winless run and opened the scoring in the 2nd minute through Rostov defender Bastos.

The lead was doubled in the 33rd minute with Ary Papel beating Liteboho Mokhesi after receiving a pass from Gilberto.

Angola continued their dominance in the second half and eventually increased their lead in the 47th minute as a Lesotho defender deflected the ball into his own net.

Romeu Filemon had promised goals before this encounter and his charges did not let him down as they added a fourth in the 57th minute through Love.

The result leaves Angola in third place with four points from four matches, two ahead of Lesotho, who are now at the foot of the table.

The Palancas Negras have their destiny in their hands as they are due to face both Gabon and Burkina Faso in November.
