  • Half-time – Gabon 1-0 Comoros

    As we near the resumption, let’s remind ourselves how that first-half went down.

    The Comoros started well on their Afcon debut, before being hit on the counter-attack.

    Saint-Etienne forward Aaron Boupendza gave Gabon a 16th minute lead with a stonking finish against the run of play.

    The Comoros huffed and puffed for the rest of the half, but couldn’t quite create a concrete opening.

    But it’s all to play for as we get going again for the second-half.

  • Half-time – Gabon 1-0 Comoros – Statistics

    It’s actually the Comoros that have had more of the possession so far.

    The underdogs have had 54 per cent of the ball in that opening 45.

    They are yet to muster a shot on target, however, with their three efforts all missing the mark.

    Gabon, on the other hand, have had one shot on target which led to the goal – with a further two off target.

    It’s been a positive first 45 for the Afcon debutants but they have nothing to show for their efforts.

    45+1. Andre Poko is crumpled in a heap.

    But I’m pretty certain he’s alright.

    Bizarrely there was no-one near him, but he’s smiling and seems okay.

    Can Comoros test him before half-time…?

    39. Gabon goalkeeper Jean Noel Amonome is now down with an apparent muscle injury.

    The referee initially appeared furious with him, seemingly threatening to book him, bizarrely.

    He then realised Amonome’s level of discomfort and waved the physios on.

    37. Boupendza now feels that he’s been elbowed and is receiving treatment.

    This stoppage has now become a mini drinks break, much to the irritation of the referee.

    Boupendza is now back up and our Kenyan referee gets us back underway.

  • Gabon 1-0 Comoros

    36. Boupendza flashes a dangerous looking delivery across Comoros’ penalty area.

    33. The game has gotten a little bitty.

    Neither team has been able to string together anything too coherent in the last few minutes.

    Can someone conjure some quality before half-time?

    31. It’s another promising crossing position for the Comoros…

    And another dreadful delivery by Abdallah Kassim.

    28. Flipping heck!

    This was a celebration to remember from Boupendza.

    But it is thumped disappointingly straight into the wall.

    24. The Comoros are struggling to get anything going since the goal.

    It really was against the run of play, but the underdogs will have to work hard to stabilise and avoid this game getting out of sight quickly.

  • Gabon 1-0 Comoros

    20. Gabon are feeling themselves now.

    Guelor Kanga smacks an ambitious effort towards goal from at least 30 yards.

    Unfortunately for him, however, it trundles tamely wide.

  • Gabon 1-0 Comoros

    17. Just as I was typing that Gabon have been distinctly under-par… they’ve taken the lead!

    Louis Autchanga latched onto a long ball, before slipping Aaron Boupendza in-behind.

    The Saint-Etienne forward then did the rest, rifling an effort high into the net beyond Ahamada Nadhoim.

    Aaron Boupendza gives Gabon the lead!

  • Gabon 0-0 Comoros – chance Comoros!

    11. The Comoros are all over Gabon here!

    The Panthers goalkeeper came flying out for a corner, never getting there.

    As he flapped helplessly through thin air the ball sailed to a green shirt.

    But unfortunately Comoros were unable to find a finish.

    But the square ball has been missed altogether 16 yards from goal!

    The effort has sailed miles high and wide… perhaps that’s why they only scored four goals in qualifying…
