Mozambique downs Kenya 1-0 in World Cup qualifier

Manuel “Tico Tico” Bucuane scored a second-half goal as Mozambique beat Kenya 1-0 in a World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday.

Bucuane also had an effort disallowed for offside in the first half.

The goal that counted came off a cross from striker Dario Monteiro before a hometown crowd of about 50,000.

The win leaves Mozambique in third spot in Group B with four points from four games, while Kenya is now in last place with three points. Group leader Tunisia and Nigeria were playing later on Sunday.
