Angola defeated Lesotho 3-1 to take top spot in Group C on goals scored, having netted six times to Namibia’s five.

Lehlohonolo Fothoane gave Lesotho the lead on 26 minutes, but when Depu slotted a penalty just before halftime, he levelled the game and moved to the top of the 2024 Cosafa Cup scorers charts alongside Namibia’s Bethuel Muzeu with a third goal in the competition.

Vidinho then netted a second for the Angolans on 63 minutes to ensure they would advance to the knockout rounds, before Miro added a second penalty late on to net his side’s third goal.

Namibia also won 3-1 as they defeated Seychelles and take second place in the pool with seven points, but advance to the semifinals as the best runner-up from across the three groups. They beat Kenya (six points, Group B) and South Africa (five points, Group A).

Muzeu bagged two goals, the first and third for Namibia, while Erastus Kulula was also on target for the Brave Warriors.

But a goal three minutes from the end by Seychelles’ Brandon Labrosse changed the complexion of the pool and dropped Namibia from first place on goal-difference to second on goals scored. –
