2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying results: Mozambique and Zimbabwe advance

Mozambique 1-1 Tanzania (8-7 on pens)  

Mozambique have advanced to the second round of the qualification campaign after having beaten Tanzania 8-7 in a penalty shootout. Jerry Sitoe first found the net for the OS Mambas at the Maputo Stadium, but their hopes were temporarily dashed when The Taifa Stars equalised during stoppage time.

The game ended 8-7 after the shootout to enable the hosts to advance to the next round on 2-2 aggregate. During the first leg both teams locked horns in a 1-1 draw game at Dar Es Salaam.
Zimbabwe 1-0 Burundi (2-2 agg)

Zimbabwe progressed to the second round of the qualification to South Africa 2013 on the away goals rule. The Warriors beat Burundi 1-0 in their second leg game on Sunday courtesy a Knowledge Musona goal in the 36th minute.

The Swallows had a slim 2-1 lead from the first leg, but could not consolidate it at the Harare Stadium. With a goal at hand from last February’s game, the Zimbabweans took advantage of home support to advance to the second round.
