Mozambique advanced to the Cosafa Cup semifinals after beating Malawi 5-4 on penalties on Monday evening at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace.

This comes after the two teams had battled it out for a 2-2 draw which saw two goals being scored in the dying minutes of the match.

It was Mozambique that got the early lead as Malawi captain Luckly Malata netted the first goal in the tenth minute.

Six minutes later John Banda had a great opportunity give his side an equalizer but he wasted the opportunity which was provided by Miciam Mhone through a cross.

Then Mhone tried to get the job done by himself by hitting a shot from range but it went wide in the 32nd minute of the match.

Just five minutes before the end of the first half Witness Quembo's shot missed the target as he tried to double the score for Mozambique.

In the second half Malawi made their first change as Robin Ngalande made way for Tzigobele Kumwenda.

In the 51 minute Sulumba finally found an equalizer for Malawi as his header found the back of the net from a cross which saw the score levelled at 1-1.

Then Banda wasted yet another opportunity as he fumbled with the ball after having received a cross from Limbikani Mzava from the right.

In the 88th minute Banda was brought down inside the box and it was Mzava who made no mistake and netted the penalty.

Then in additional time, Mzava brought the game alive as he scored an own goal which saw the match going to a penalty shootout where Mozambique won through to the next round.
