Pelembe receives late Mozambique call up


Elias Pelembe has received a late Mozambique call up ahead of the final two Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers against Rwanda and Cape Verde Islands.

Pelembe was initially left out of the squad but coach Luis Gonçalves decided to add the experienced winger to his squad for the two crucial matches. The former Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns star arrived at Kigali, the capital of Rwanda on Tuesday morning.

Pelembe, who recently joined GladAfrica Championship side Polokwane City did not leave with the Mambas as they left Maputo because the result of his Covid-19 screening test only arrived on Sunday night.

The Mambas will take on Rwanda on Wednesday afternoon before hosting Cape Verde Islands on the 30th of March, Tuesday in the Afcon qualifiers.
