Mozambique Shock Zambia with a late goal | #AFCON2019 Qualifier

Former winners Zambia were left stunned by a late goal as they lost 1-0 to Mozambique at home in their opening qualifier for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Mozambique left it until the 89th minute to earn their first ever win over Chipolopolo with Germany-based Stanley Ratifo scoring the goal in Ndola.

2012 African champions Zambia dominated the Group K encounter for long spells but failed to turn their superiority into goals.

The Mambas made them pay for their profligacy when Ratifo finished brilliantly from a cut-back to stun the home side.

Elias Pelembe should have doubled the lead in added time but goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene rushed out of his box to stop the Bidvest Wits winger.

Coach Abel Xavier and the Mambas held on to celebrate a first triumph over Zambia in 18 attempts.
