Gabon beat Angola and are still hopeful in the qualifiers


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.
