Johannesburg — The Angolan national football team has started to use a facility made available by the Africa Football Confederation (CAF) for the first phase of the Orange African Cup of Nations (AFCON2013) kick-starting on January 19 here with group A games.

After a break of Monday afternoon, the national team started its training session on the pitch adjacent to Milpark Hotel, without the participation of the plays coach Gustavo Ferrin excluded, namely Ito, Ary, Paty and Mabina.
