Comoros sealed their place in the next round of Southern Zone 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers, despite suffering a second leg defeat away to Lesotho.

Raboama Koloti scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win for Likuena at the Setsotso Stadium in Maseru on Saturday.

Victory, though, was not enough for the hosts as they exit the competition following a 2-1 aggregate defeat.

Comoros registered a 2-0 win at the Stade de Moroni in the first-leg.

Mohamed Youssouf and Raidou Boina Bacar found the back of the net for Les Coelecantes’ last week, with the Island nation aiming to book their place at a CHAN tournament for the first time.

Comoros will face either Namibia or Zimbabwe for a place at next year's showpiece in Kenya.
