2018 COSAFA Mens' U-17: South Africa chase 3rd COSAFA title

Port Louis, Mauritius (PANA) - When South Africa and Angola meet on Sunday in the finals of the 2018 COSAFA Men's Under-17 championship, the South Africans will be chasing their 3rd zonal title and Angola their first.

The pair emerged winners in their semifinals on Friday, with South Africa disposing of hosts Mauritius 2-0 and Angola putting in an excellent second-half display to rout Namibia 7-0, the biggest victory of the tournament to date.

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

The third-place match earlier on Sunday is between hosts Mauritius and Namibia, the 2016 winners.

Winners in Sunday's finals will qualify for the final tournament to be held in Tanzania next year.
