Harare - South Africa’s national under-23 side, Amaglug-glug, played to a 1-1 draw against Zimbabwe in the first leg match of the CAF U23 Championship qualifiers played at the Rufaro stadium.

Keagan Dolly gave the South African side the lead in the 66th minute before he was cancelled out by Walter Musona, who scored from the penalty spot.

Owen Da Gama’s side were very strong from the opening exchanges and were not troubled by playing away from home.

Siyabonga Zulu was the first to test the Zimbabwean side as his effort was saved by the goalkeeper in the 16th minute.

Siphelele Ntshangase also had an effort at goal but the Zimbabwean goalkeeper was up to the task with Amaglug-glug creating more chances.

Simphiwe Nkhambule missed a great chance to put the visitors ahead on the stroke of half-time.

The match headed to the half-time break goalless with Amaglug-glug the better of the two sides.

Da Gama made his first change of the match in the 60th minute with Dumisane Zuma replacing Nkhambule.

Amaglug-glug went ahead shortly after Zuma’s introduction with Dolly capitalising as Zimbabwe gave away possession in their own half for the opening goal of the match.

The Zimbabwean side that had Mamelodi Sundowns’ Kudakwashe Mahachi in their line-up managed to find their way back into the game as Musona equalised from the penalty spot.

Zuma had a chance to win it for South African in the dying minutes, but his effort went wide as the match ended at 1-1.
