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.
