Lesotho Continue Stunning Run

The Crocodiles of Lesotho continued their stunning run in the Cosafa cup when they stunned Angola 5-3 in a penalty shootout in their quarter-final clash on Sunday. The game ended 1-1 in regulation time.

Angola had sent their U23 side to the tournament but were still favourites coming into the game. That did not translate on the pitch though as Lesotho were the better side throughout.

The game got off to a scrappy start on what was a difficult put but Lesotho had the first chance with Motlalepula Mofolo working goalkeeper Nelson in the 11th minute.

Angola, though, would break the deadlock in the 25th minute with Mabululu latched onto a loose ball before hammering a shot home from far out - a sure contender for Goal of the Tournament.

Lesotho did not panic though and would hit back with four minutes left in the half as Thapelo Tale tucked away a cross from Katloho Moleko. Litsebe Marabe tried to keep it out but only helped it over the line.

After the break, Tale went close in the 61st minute but was denied by an acrobatic save from the goalkeeper while another attempt nine minutes later came back off the crossbar.

Lehlomela Ramabele then replaced Tale and came close to snatching a stoppage time winner but his shot stabbed effort hit the underside of the crossbar as penalties were needed.

Lesotho were calm and composed in the shootout, sinking all of their shots to see off Angola and they will now meet defending champions Zimbabwe in the next round.
