Mozambique advanced to the second round of the AFCON qualification campaign after defeating Tanzania 8-7 in a penalty shootout.

Jerry Sitoe opened the scoring for the OS Mambas at the Maputo Stadium, but their hopes were temporarily dashed when The Taifa Stars equalised during stoppage time.

The game ended 8-7 after the shootout to enable the hosts to advance to the next round on a 2-2 aggregate. The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw in Dar Es Salaam.

Zimbabwe also progressed, on the away goals rule. The Warriors beat Burundi 1-0 in their second leg game on Sunday courtesy a Knowledge Musona goal in the 36th minute.

The Swallows had a slim 2-1 lead from the first leg, but could not consolidate it at the Harare Stadium.

With an away goal at hand from last February’s game, the Zimbabweans took advantage of home support to advance.
