Mozambique fires coach Goncalves after AFCON failure

Mozambique coach Luis Goncalves has become the latest casualty since 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers concluded this week, losing his job after failing to reach the finals.

A national football federation statement confirmed the Maputo-born handler had been sacked after the Mambas (Snakes) lost 1-0 at home to Cape Verde and finished last in a group including Cameroon and Rwanda.

Having won at home to Rwanda and drawn away against Cape Verde, Mozambique lost four consecutive matches to derail hopes of a first Cup of Nations appearance since 2010.

Whoever succeeds Goncalves faces a mammoth task as they are in the same 2022 World Cup qualifying group as Cameroon and the Ivory Coast.
