their Group B match came from Orlando Pirates forward Gabadinho Mhango in the 67th minute.

The dimunitive Mhango picked up a pass from Gerald Phiri Jr before beating two defenders inside the area and then firing in a fierce shot that South Sudan keeper Majak Mawith was unable to hold as the ball spilled into the net.

It was however a difficult game for Malawi as they struggled to find any fluidity early in the game while South Sudan will draw some positives from the match as they twice were denied by the woodwork.

The two other countries in Group B Burkina Faso and Uganda were meeting later on at the Stade 4 Aout on Ouagadougou city.

Was the pass from Phiri? I saw like it was a kick from Goal keeper straight to Gaba and he scored after some runs. Eish!!!!!
