Baz Almost Qualified

ONISMOR Bhasera played the full 90 minutes as Zimbabwe over came Angola 3-1 in the first leg of their decisive African Cup of Nations qualifier.

After an own-goal early in the first-half, efforts from Khama Billiat and Archford Gutu but the Warriors three up before the break.

Angola's Djalma fired home a consolation in the 56th minute but it was not enough to inspire a comeback.
