19h58 – Lesotho vs Rwanda: The game fizzled out as the 90th minute made its way at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, with neither side able to convert their goal scoring opportunities.


Nevertheless, Kwizera’s effort proved to be enough for Amavubi to bag maximum points on the night and moved to the top of Group C in the process. Lesotho on the other hand occupy 4th spot after four matches played.


19h57: Full-time – Cape Verde 1 (Diney Borges 10′)  Libya 0

19h18 – Lesotho vs Rwanda: Amavubi looked dangerous in the wide areas of the pitch and remained on the attack 10 minutes after the restart. Lesotho on the other hand, found themselves congesting their box in attempts to ward off Rwanda’s attacks.

19:12 — Zambia 0-1 Tanzania— It’s been two minutes into the second half and Zambia have a clear mandate to get back into the game or risk losing out on the points. Tanzania have defended well thus far and will hope to continue on that front, and perhaps double their lead.


19:10: South Africa 1 (I. Rayners 1’) Zimbabwe 1 (T. Chirewa 2’) – We’re back underway in Bloemfontein, where both teams have made changes: Thapelo Morena is on for Bafana Bafana, and the Warriors have introduced Daniel Msendami.

18h50 – Lesotho vs Rwanda: Goal!


Rwanda took the lead on the stroke of half-time as Jodea Kwizera got his name on the scoresheet.

18h35 – Lesotho vs Rwanda: The score remained at 0-0 en-route to the half-hour mark while Lesotho were awarded a couple of set-plays inside the Rwanda half. Not holding back, Rwanda often found themselves probing inside the Lesotho quarters but with very little success.


18h33 – Chad 0-0 Comoros: The two goalkeepers are yet to be seriously tested with the two teams struggling to create chances as we pass the half-hour mark.


18:34: South Africa 1 (I. Rayners 1’) Zimbabwe 1 (T. Chirewa 2’) – Past the half-hour mark at the Free State Stadium, where it remains deadlocked between Group C rivals SA and Zimbabwe.


18h23 – Lesotho vs Rwanda: Amavubi grew into the game after the 20th minute mark and gathered steam in their attacking movements. However, Rwanda were met with aggressive defending by the Lesotho backline.

18h16 – Chad 0-0 Comoros: The visitors are controlling possession well in the opening stages as they look to break the deadlock.


18:15 — Zambia 0-1 Tanzania — Zambia clearly working hard to get back into the game after conceding early. Tanzania have been forced into their own half for the most part with 12 minutes played.


18h15: Cape Verde v Libya – Goal! The Blue Sharks hit the front through Diney Borges with just 10 minutes on the clock to get off to the perfect start in Praia.


18h14– Lesotho vs Rwanda: It was an even affair during the first 10 minutes at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, however, it was Lesotho who edged their opposite number to the ball possession count.
