Mozambique have disappointed on the international stage given the talent available in the country, as they have never qualified for the FIA World Cup and have appeared in just three CAF Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.
In fact, the side only entered its first qualification campaign for the Nations Cup in 1982, with the Federação Moçambicana de Futebol having only been affiliated to FIFA two years earlier.
They failed in that attempt, but did win a place at the 1986 finals in the Egypt, losing all three of their group matches without scoring a goal.
It would be another decade before they would appear again, this time in South Africa in 1996, where they lost to Cote dIvoire and Ghana, but did manage to gain their first finals point with a 1-1 draw against Tunisia. They last qualified for the Nations Cup in 1998.
They will believe they have a good chance of making it to the 2010 finals in Angola. The side is lead by Dutch coach Mart Nooij, who has been in charge since 2007.
The countrys top flight league is the Mocambola. The reigning champions are Ferroviario de Maputo and Costa do Sol have won the most titles (nine).
