Lesotho ground out a 1-0 win over Tanzania on Sunday to keep their hopes of qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations alive heading into the final round of ties.
The decisive goal came 14 minutes from time when defender Nkau Lerotholi steered home a corner to give his side what proved to be an unassailable lead.
However, Lesotho might have enjoyed a slightly less stressful winning margain had striker Tumelo Khutlang not been struck down with an acute case of ‘newborn baby giraffe legs’ earlier in the match.
Indeed, having been put through on goal, Khutlang dodged past the Tanzanian goalkeeper and looked all set to score only to file not one, but two dreadful misses in the space of a couple of disastrous seconds…
Thankfully, Khutlang’s blushes were eventually spared, with Lesotho moving level on points with Tanzania in the standings as a result.
As it happens, both teams (along with Cape Verde) can still make it through to AfCoN 2019 heading into the last round of qualifiers in March.
