Cosafa -U20: Resilient Lesotho hold Zimbabwe

Lesotho earned a point against Group C favorites Zimbabwe after forcing a goalless stalemate at the ongoing 2017 Mopani Cosafa-U20 Championships in tightly contested game at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe today.



Lesotho came so close to scoring midway in the first half  but Raboama Koloti’s shot from range bounced off the frame of the goal.

Zimbabwe front players Denzel Khumalo,  Tatenda Mchisa and  Clive Rupiya were held back by the Lesotho backline of Mokoteli Mohapi, Relebohlille Mabone, Mohai Mohai and Seeiso Lerotholi seeing both sides heading to half time with no goals.

There was a double scare for Lesotho when two players Relebohlille Mabone Tanki Seola got injured.  Seola was treated for a nose bleed. Both managed to continue nonetheless.

None of the teams managed a breakthrough in the second half with both teams settling for a point.
