Mauritius Safe after Beating Rwanda in a Crucial AFCON Match

Blues midfielder Kevin Bru created the winning goal as Mauritius beat Rwanda 1-0 at the Anjalay Stadium in Belle Vue to climb to second in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying group.

Bru, who started and won his sixth full cap, sent over the corner from which Francis Rasolofonirina netted the game’s only goal just before the hour mark.

The Mauritians, who beat Mozambique in an earlier qualifier, are now three points behind group leaders Ghana.

The group winners and the two best runners-up go through to the finals in Gabon on January and February next year.

Following the game, the Mauritius squad went straight to the airport to fly to Rwanda ahead of Tuesday’s qualifier in Kigali.

All today’s AFCON matches were like;

Mauritius 1-0 Rwanda
Seychelles 2-0 Lesotho
Burundi 1-3 Namibia
Cameroon 2-2 South Africa
DR Congo 2-1 Angola
