2018 COSAFA Men's U-17: Angola win maiden COSAFA title

Port Louis, Mauritius (PANA) - Angola on Sunday claimed their maiden COSAFA under-17 championship when they edged two-time champions South Africa 1-0 in the final of the 2018 competition

In the end, it was a goal scored in the 5th minute by Capita at St. François Xavier Stadium in Port Louis that made the difference.

South Africa won their titles in 1994 and 2002 when they hosted both tournaments.

In the third-place match, Namibia, winners in 2016, defeated hosts Mauritius 2-1 to claim the bronze.

Angola's victory means that they will represent the zone in the African Under-17 final tournament in Tanzania next year.
