When the half-time whistle sounded, the national team was losing by a difference of one goal (1-0). However, in the last half of the match – held at the Petrol Sport stadium – the national team managed to turn the score around with goals from José Candeeiro and Pedro Vicente, in the 29th and 36th minutes respectively.

Thus, Angola will return to the field on Thursday. According to Angop, in the match, counting for the 'quarters', the national team will compete for passage to the semi-finals with Algeria.

It should be noted that the national team was part of group D, also composed of Tanzania and Rwanda, but the latter ended up withdrawing, meaning that the three games initially planned at this stage became two.

There were also withdrawals in group A and group B, with the Cameroon and Senegal teams abandoning the competition, respectively. Only group C remained complete, comprising Ghana, Kenya, Gambia and Algeria, says Angop.

It is recalled that in their debut game of this edition of CAN, the national team – which won the title in 2019, in a final played in Benguela – beat Sierra Leone 4-0, with goals from Lucas Fungula, Heno Guilherme, Félix Paciência and Pedro Vicente.

In addition to Angola, the teams from Egypt, Nigeria, Morocco, Liberia, Ghana, Algeria and Tanzania also qualified for the 'quarters'.
