Botswana Win Thriller Against CAR

Botswana came from behind to beat the Central African Republic 3-2 at the Lobatse Stadium in Lobatse, Botswana.

The game was a dead rubber from the start, because neither team could progress to the next stage of the competition – the game between South Africa and Ethiopia on Sunday will decide that.

Les Fauves were the first to score, thanks to Nicaise Ozingoni who put the ball in the back of the net on 33 minutes. But Botwsana had a penalty awarded soon afterwards when Ali Calvin Tolmbaye committede a foul in the box. He was shown a red card and Jerome Ramatlhakwane stepped up to convert the penalty, levelling the score at 1-1.

Both teams entered the second half knowing that more goals were in the offering, and soon the Central African Republic were back ahead. Nicaise Ozingoni scored his second on the day just five minutes after the restart.

But Botswana were not finished yet. With 15 minutes to play Mogakolodi Ngele found the back of the net to level the score at 2-2. The game entered a tense phase of play as both teams looked for a winner, leaving their defences vulnerable.

And it was Botwsana who capitalised through the boot of Ofentse Nato, whose 86th-minute winner meant that The Zebras won the match.
