Egypt and Botswana took giant steps towards spots at the final round of the qualifiers of the 10th Africa Women Cup of Nations Cameroon 2016 thanks to convincing wins at the weekend.

The Lady Pharaohs of Egypt were the biggest winners during the first leg matches of the first round, beating North African rivals, Libya 8-0 on Sunday away in Sousse, Tunisia. Aliaa Shoukry scored four goals including a hat-trick in the first half completed after 12 minutes. Goals from Mahira Ali, Engy Ahmed, Nadeen Gazy and Fayza Hidar took the game beyond the Libyans ahead of the return leg in a fortnight.

On the otherhand, the Lady Zebras of Botswana beat Mauritius 7-0 in Lobatse, scoring five goals after the break. Nondi Mahlasela was the heroine for Botswana, eyeing their first ever appearance at the flagship women’s championship, scoring in either half. The 24-year old, who plays for Prisons Club broke the deadlock on 19 minutes before Bonang Otlhagile doubled the lead just before the interval.

Mahlasela completed her brace seven minutes after the break before a goal each from Tlamelo Motlhale and substitutes Bame Ngenda, Golebaone Selebatso and Refilwe Mathlo completed the rout.

Elsewhere in Dakar, Binta Diakhate’s fifth minute strike was all Senegal needed to beat Guinea for a slim lead ahead of the return leg in Conakry.

Visiting North African duo, Morocco and Tunisia held Mali and Burkina Faso to barren draws in Bamako and Ouagadougou respectively.

Zerrouki Dalila scored on 61 minutes to give Algeria a narrow win over Ethiopia in Bologhine, near Algiers.

Zambia avenged the 2-0 loss to host Namibia at the opening match of the last continental championship, beating the latter 3-1 in Lusaka. The Chipolopolo led 3-0 at half time courtesy a brace from Noria Sasala and the other by Grace Chanda. Lorraine Jossob grabbed a consolation for the Brave Gladiators to put them in contention.

Earlier on Friday, Zimbabwe maintained their dominance over Tanzania with a 2-1 win at the latter’s backyard, Dar es Salaam. The visiting Mighty Warriors came from behind to snatch victory thanks to Erina Jeke’s double after Mwanahamisi Omary opened the scores on 17 minutes.  

The final tournament has been fixed for 19 November – 3 December in the Cameroonian cities of Yaounde and Limbe.
