    AFCON 2023: Angola Stun Namibia 3-0 in Thrilling Round of 16 Clash!

    Angola’s Black Sable Antelopes put on a dominant display, thrashing their neighbors Namibia 3-0 to book their spot in the Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinals!

    The drama unfolded early in the game at Stade de Bouake. Namibia tried to catch Angola off guard with through balls, but their plan backfired spectacularly.

    In the 17th minute, Angolan goalkeeper rashly handled the ball outside the box, earning a straight red card and reducing his team to 10 men. 🟥

    Despite the numerical disadvantage, Angola didn’t buckle. They upped their tempo and found the opening goal in style in the 38th minute. Fredy orchestrated a beautiful team move, setting up Gelson Dala for a simple tap-in to put Angola 1-0 ahead! ⚽️

    Namibia’s woes deepened just before halftime. Lubeni Haukongo received his second yellow card, sending them down to 10 men as well. 🟥 This opened the door even wider for Angola, and Dala capitalized again two minutes later, heading home Fredy’s free-kick to make it 2-0 at the break.

    In the second half, Namibia pushed forward desperately for an equalizer, but Angola’s defense held firm. The Black Sable Antelopes then sealed the deal in the 66th minute with a swift counter-attack. Mabululu finished off the move with a sublime strike, putting the game beyond reach at 3-0!

    This thrilling victory sends Angola marching into the quarterfinals, where they’ll face the winner of the Nigeria vs. Cameroon clash. It’s a historic moment for the Black Sable Antelopes, marking their third time reaching the AFCON quarterfinals.

    Meanwhile, Namibia’s run in the knockout stages comes to an end, but they can hold their heads high after reaching the AFCON Round of 16 for the first time ever. 🇳🇦

    • Angola’s resilience: Despite going down to 10 men early, Angola showed incredible fighting spirit and composure to secure the win.
    • Gelson Dala’s brace: The Angolan striker was clinical in front of goal, grabbing two goals to be the hero of the night.
    • Namibia’s red cards: The two dismissals proved costly for Namibia, making it an uphill battle from the start.

    This AFCON encounter was full of emotions., showcasing both the tactical brilliance and unpredictable nature of African football. With the quarterfinals set to be even more intense, one thing’s for sure: AFCON 2023 is far from over! ⚽️
