Comoros need one point

The Comoros, an island nation off the coast of Mozambique with a population of 875,000, moved within one point of reaching the finals for the first time after a 2-1 home win over Kenya.

Serbia-based Ben — full name El Fardou Mohamed Ben Nabouhane — put the Comorans ahead and Cliff Nyakeya equalised before half-time.

French Ligue 2 forward Faiz Mattoir put the home side ahead a second time four minutes into the second half with what proved the match-winning goal.

Boasting an unbeaten record in Group G, the Comoros have eight points, record seven-time African champions Egypt five, Kenya three and Togo one.
