It was particularly long to emerge, but Mali managed to avoid the trap set by the Congo by winning on penalties (0-0, 5-4 tab) this Saturday in Yaoundé to seize the first Ticket for the semi-finals of CHAN 2020.
After a balanced first act during which the two teams surrendered, the pace slackened in the second half and no one then managed to gain the upper hand during extra time.
Everything was played on penalties and the failed attempt by Prince Mouandza will have weighed down his people. Congo will be able to come out with their heads held high, while Mali will face the winner of Guinea-Rwanda in the semi-finals.
