Moses Simon provided Lookman with a nice pass inside the box. It allowed him to finish with a precise effort under the bar.

Earlier, Mabululu won himself just enough space to meet the corner and shot. The goalkeeper made a comfortable save as the ball went into the middle of a goal for corner kick.

In the the 59th minute, a great pass put Zini clear inside the box, he sidestepped the keeper but inexplicably hit his shot against the right post.

In the 89th minute, Zito Luvumbo found himself in a promising position. He ran towards the goal and unleashed a shot from just outside the penalty area which went towards the middle of the goal, but the goalkeeper was ready and made a decent save.
