Will Triangle make history?

EXACTLY 10 years after Zimbabwe’s Mwana Africa qualified for the mini-league of the CAF Confederation Cup, Lowveld outfit Triangle are on the brink of qualifying for the same.

Triangle have gone about their business quietly and they could now make history.

They simply need to do the job against FC Noudhibou of Mauritania at the Nouakchott Olympic stadium on Sunday in the last knock-out round before the group stages.

Although coach Taurai Mangwiro has indicated that it has been difficult to balance between domestic matches and Africa, Triangle have been smooth in the African Safari.

This has been at the expense of the Premier Soccer League title.

Mwana Africa, a club now defunct, reached the mini-league in 2009 after beating Etoile Filante of Burkina Faso at the last hurdle.

The Chibuku Super Cup champions have since arrived in Mauritania for Sunday’s game.

Kick-off is at 7pm.

If they can get a good result in this first leg of the second round tie, they will be favourites to progress when they play the reverse fixture at Barbourfields stadium in Bulawayo.

Their qualification will ensure Zimbabwe will still have two representatives in Africa’s club competitions.

League champions FC Platinum are in the group stages of the CAF Champions league.
