Gabon surprise Mauritania

2014-01-23 00:00

GABON twice fought back from a goal down to defeat Mauritania 4-2 at the Free State Stadium last night and secure a passage into the Caf African Nations Championship (Chan) quarterfinals.

The match got off to a flying start, with a goal for each side within the opening seven minutes. Gabon dominated most of the phases but, against the run of play, Khalil netted a second in the 65th minute to put “Les Mourabitones” ahead. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
