FIFA U-17 World Cup: Angola Progress to Round of 16

Angola's second-ever FIFA U-17 World Cup™ match became their second win as the Palanquinhas  prevailed 2-1 over Canada on Tuesday evening at Brasilia's Estadio Bezerrao, ensuring a place in the tournament's last 16. Substitute forward David netted the dramatic winning goal four minutes into second-half stoppage time.
Zini opened the scoring for the Africans just on the half-hour mark before a goal scorer off the bench in Canada's loss to Brazil, Jacen Russell-Rowe scored as a starter this time out in the 49th minute.

Zito picked up right where he left off against New Zealand, terrorising Canadian defenders with his pace and technical ability. The Palanquinhas' first go-ahead goal was disallowed for offside in the 90th minute, but eventual goal scorer David would not be denied.
