Angola/Cameroon: Mabiná Leaves Bench and Scores National Team's Victory Goal

Lubango — With a splendid movement that culminated with a great kick, the midfielder Mabiná last Wednesday secured the national team's 1-0 victory over Cameropn, in a friendly match played in the southern Huila Province, ahead of Angola's participation in the Africa Cup of Nations of South Africa (AFCON2013).

Mabinà replaced Amaro at 46 minutes and scored at 54 minutes.

The Angolan squad went into the game showing determination to improve the performance and result seen in last week's friendly game with Gambia (1-1).

The national team, coached by the Uruguayan Gustavo Ferrin, played more in the attack anmd changed the ball well, before an adversary that displayed some "inhibition".

Geraldo, Pirolito, Yano and Mingo Bille are the Angolan squad's players whose performance stood out more, mainly in the left side of the field.
