Goal of the Day

Obviously given instructions to shoot on sight or in this case when out of sight, Nigeria’s Dario Khan scores with an absolute screamer against Mozambique in the African Nations Championship. Given the distance, perhaps the goalkeeper, Soarito, could have done better. Being candid, he couldn’t have done much worse.

Soarito came in to the starting line-up as a replacement for Pinto, who was at fault in similar circumstances in Mozambique’s opening match defeat to hosts South Africa. Hlompho Kekana struck his shot well, but the keeper should surely get a hand on it.

There is a third goalkeeper in the Mozambique squad, Desportivo de Nacala’s Victor, but if Pinto and Soarito are anything to go by, then Os Mamabas might be better off playing with ten men in their final group match against Mali.
