Eswatini, Comoros share the spoils

Eswatini registered a second straight draw at the COSAFA Cup after playing to a four-goal thriller with Comoros on Monday.

There are only three teams in Group A after Angola withdrew from the tournament last week.
 
Eswatini began the campaign with a 2-2 draw against Mauritius on Saturday evening, and were looking to secure three points this time around.
 
After both sides made early substitutions, it was Eswatini got the opening goal when Sabelo Ndzinisa broke the deadlock after 24 minutes.
 
Comoros, who had a bye over the weekend, were back on level terms four minutes before the break, with Boina Raidou finding the back of the net.
 
Eswatini restored their lead five minutes after the break as Felix Badenhorst bagged his second goal of the tournament with a fine finish.
 
The joy was short-lived though, as Comoros pulled level for the second occasion thanks to a strike from Youssouf Ibroihim.
 
That proved to be the final goal of the encounter as Eswatini move top of the group with two points, while Comoros begin the campaign with a point.
