Comoros have taken a big stride toward the third round of Southern Zone qualifiers for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) after they defeated Lesotho 2-0 on Saturday.

Les Coelecantes’ victory at Stade de Moroni puts them within touching distance of a clash against either Namibia or Zimbabwe in the final qualifying phase, though they will have to come through a testing return leg.

Comoros claimed the lead through Mohamed Youssouf early in the second half, and wrapped up the match with an 78th minute strike from Raidou Boina Bacar.

The return leg match is set for the Setsotso Stadium in Maseru next weekend.
