It was tug-of-war between Burundi and Mauritania, but a wonder goal from Selemani Ndikumana in the dying seconds of the match handed Burundi a crucial 3-2 win in their Group D CAF African Nations Championship match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday night.

Voulany robbed a defender of the ball on the left flank before driving into the 18-yard box and firing the ball past the keeper from an extremely acute angle 16-yards out, 1-0.

Burundi (1) 3 (Fiston Razak Abdul 11’, Christophe Nduwarugira 61’, Selemani Ndikumana 93’)

Mauritania (1) 2 (Ely Cheikh Voulany 2’, Mohamed Taghiyoullah Denna 70’)
