South Sudan thrashed Djibouti 6-0 in Juba on Tuesday to reach the group stage of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.
   

Trailing 2-0 from the first leg last Wednesday, the South Sudanese led after 12 minutes of the return match and were four goals ahead by half-time.
   

The lead stretched to five goals just after half-time and the rout was completed 15 minutes from time for a 6-2 aggregate triumph. Robert Duku, James Joseph (twice) and Dominic Abui scored in the opening half and Ater Thomas and Khemis Leon after half-time.
   

It was just the second win for South Sudan in nine Cup of Nations qualifiers while Djibouti have lost all nine away games in the competition, conceding 51 goals.
   

Comoros also progressed after drawing 1-1 with Mauritius in Belle Vue to win 3-1 overall after building a two-goal lead at home last Friday. El Fardou Nabouhane put the visitors ahead and Walter Saint Martin levelled in the final minute of the first half.
   

The Comorans go into Group B with title-holders Cameroon, Morocco and Malawi and the South Sudanese are in Group C with Mali, Gabon and Burundi.
   

Matchday one fixtures are scheduled for June 5-13.
