Football / U17 World Cup: Angola beat Canada, reach eighth final

Luanda The national Under-17 football team beat Canada 2-1 Tuesday evening for the second round match of Group A of the World Cup, taking place in Brazil, thus qualifying for the eighth final.

Angola came out at the break leading the score by 1-0 with Zine’s goal on 30 minutes, while Russel Rowe scored the equalizer on 48 ‘.

The match was marked by the fact that Uruguayan referee Claudia Umpierrez annulled a penalty and a goal for the national team.

The first moment happened at 21 minutes. After having whistled a penalty, considering that the ball hit the hand of an opposing defender, Claudia Umpierrez allegedly received a communication from the control technicians of the video referee and then overturned the decision.

Then, before the 90th minute, Zito Luvumbo put Angola ahead (2-1) and again the goal is annulled by the video referee.

The winning goal came at 90 + 3 by David.
