Malagasy goalkeeper drops the ball, but his defenders bail him out of jail; not for this first time this evening. Still goalless.
67' - SAVE! - Razanakoto's
stinging shot well save by the Zimbabwe stopper.
The resulting free-kick comes to nothing... but Madagascar have been the better side in the second-half. Zimbabwe and in particular Mashumba
have not come to the party in the second stanza.

who was just booked for a foul on the far right flank.

How on earth haven't they scored....Madagascar clear off the line before Tarumbwa weaves his way into the area before sending his effort inches wide of goal.
END TO END STUFF: Great save by Madagascar goalkeeper to deny Mashumba.
Zimbabwe started the game on the front foot, but Madagascar have now found their rhythm and are causing the four-time champions all sorts of problems.
28' - CLOSE! Razanakoto
tries his luck from range...goalkeeper back pedals, but lucky for Mukuruva the ball sails just over his crossbar.
26' - Kutinyu
is the first Warriors player booked by the referee.
Free-kick played short for Phiri
who finds a pocket of space on the edge of the area, but his rasping shot is straight at the goalkeeper. Randrianirina
has been booked for the challenge that resulted in the free-kick.
16' - CHANCE!
Former AmaTuks striker Tarumbwa
with a golden chance to open the scoring. Ball falls to theWarriors forward on the penalty spot, but he only succeeds in blazing his shot over the crossbar.
Zimbabwe finding space down the right flank in the early stages of the clash, but Madagascar defence holding firm.
10' - Phiri
tries his luck from range, but the Warriors' captain's shot lacked venom...easy take for the Madagascar stopper.
Positive start to the game. Both teams passing the ball around well, not afraid to press forward in search of the opener.
