Gabon’s side has some hope of qualifying for the final round of the African qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup 2022. On October 11, 2021, the Gabonese beat the Angolans 2-0 and now have 4 points in four matches.
The Gabonese joy and relief at the final signal was understandable. On October 11, 2021 in Franceville, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his band saved themselves on a premature end in African qualifiers for WC 2022 of football. Three days after suffering the Angolan team (3-1) in Luanda, the Panthers really took revenge 2-0 in Franceville, during the fourth day.
The Gabonese players spent the break getting a rerun of the team’s tactical organization and regained a solid organization when the game started again. At a corner that is pushed back into the shoulder, the midfielder controls the ball from the chest and transfers it to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a half volleyball. Gabon’s star in the middle forward hits hard under the crossbar: 1-0.
Aubameyang twice decisive Ten minutes later, Aubameyang is also decisive for the second goal on the premises. It overflows to the left and tries to center against Alex Moucketou-Moussounda. However, the defender was involuntary and awkward before an Agusto Carneiro who scored against his camp (2-0, 84th).
This point allows the Panthers to dream of a comeback. Because with 4 points taken in 4 matches, they have to beat Libya and then win in Egypt in November to hope to be first in Group F.
