AFCON2019: Uganda and Zimbabwe Play Out a Draw


Knowledge Musona produced one of the Africa Cup of Nations’ all-time great misses as Zimbabwe’s hopes of progression were further dented in a 1-1 draw with Uganda.

Sunday Chidzambwa’s side were on level terms in Cairo at the time of the miss after Khama Billiat cancelled out Emmanuel Okwi’s opener.

But Zimbabwe, beaten 1-0 by hosts Egypt in their opening match last week, missed their big opportunity to get a first win in this year’s competition as captain Musona somehow missed an open goal from four yards.

Uganda held on for a draw to add to the three points collected against DR Congo – their first AFCON win in 41 years.

That left them top of Group A ahead of tournament hosts Egypt’s game in hand against DR Congo later on Wednesday.
