The 75th Anniversary Celebrations for Quelimane City reached the climax on Monday afternoon after the City team beat the visiting
Malawian giants Mighty Be Forward Wanderers.
The Nomads were invited to play Quelimane to spice the anniversary celebrations for the City of Quelimane.
Reports from Mozambique indicates that Wanderers dominated in terms of possession but lacked killer punch upfront where the
featured former international Esau Kanyenda and Khumbo Ng’ambi.
Alfred Manyozo Junior who will be out of action for the rest of the first round matches following a ban by Malawi FA also had
a grand game alongside Joseph Kamwendo at the middle of the park.
Enterprising wingers Yamikani Chester and Isaac Kaliati who were featured on the right and left flanks were also impressive and a
marvel to watch.
But the Nomads failed to break the deadlock against the stubborn Qualimane side which plays in the Mozambican top league and are
currently on position 14.
The visitors were denied two goals that were ruled out for an offside.
The game ended 0-0 and the winner had to be decided through post-match penalties.
Quelimane converted all their first four penalty kicks while Wanderers only converted two through Isaac Kaliati and Stanley Sanudi.
Kamwendo, who led the penalty kick parade for the Nomads, blasted his penalty over the bar while Jabulani Linje’s spot kick was denied entry by the wood work.
