Masters defeated 5-0 in CAF Confederations Cup openor

Massacre is the catchword for Masters Security as the Malawian team were unable to contain  Petróleos de Luanda as they fell to a 5-0 defeat in CAF Confederations Cup preliminary round first leg at November 11 Stadium in Luanda, Angola.

Masters  gave a better account of themselves as they managed  to hold the hosts for a good part of the first-half.

But in the 40th minute the team started cracking, conceding 40th minute conceding their first goal scored by Tiago Lima Leal.

Antonio Rosa Ribieiro scored three goals in eight minutes before Valdisney hit the last nail in added time.

Masters coach Abbas Makawa attempted to calm the nerves, labeling the thrashing “a loss, not a humiliation.”

“When you lose by five goals you can’t leave crying, you have to go and work harder,” he said.

“We should not lose hope. They have scored five goals, we can also do the same in the return leg.”

But Masters owner Alfred Gangata appeared to have thrown in the towel, saying the return leg to be played on February 20 at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe, will be just a formality.

Other results in the competition are Al Hilal of South Sudan lost 3-0 away to Ben Guerdane of Tunisia, Deportivo Niefang lost 2-1 to New Star of Cameroon, Costa do Sol of neighbouring Mozambique beat Jwaneng Galaxy FC of Botswana 1-0, Young Buffaloes of Swaziland lost Cape Town City of South Africa, AS Maniema of DRC overcame Mangasport of Gabon 1-0.

I questioned the first time I read on Nyasa Times that what criteria was used to allow Masters to join CAF Cup.Here is the results and I am not surprised.For me they went for a tour in Angola and not to compete.The results of the 2 teams can tell the standard of football in Malawi,down.See how Mozambican clubs fare in these competitions it is fine not these 5-0 humiliations.Please alot of work required for Malawian football..

Nyasatimes you can write anything . You can use the most humiliating words to describe Master security loss but you never contributed any penny just like Malawi govt to their trip. So shut up. Master is not the only team to have lost yesterday and it is their money

You have been battered akulu, you are already a hopeless and useless football club within Malawi. How would you even dare to join such a competition? What a waste!
