Angola held by Gambia

Angola and Real Vallodolid's Manucho
Manucho scored the equaliser for Angola against The Gambia.

Striker Manucho scored an equaliser for Angola as the Africa Cup of Nations hosts draw 1-1 with The Gambia in a friendly in Portugal on Sunday.

Ebrima Sawaneh grabbed the lead for The Gambia after just four minutes.

Manucho, whose inclusion in the squad had been in doubt after he fell out with coach Manuel Jose, levelled things up for the Palancas Negras after 29 minutes.

Angola will now return home to Luanda to finalise their build-up for the Nations Cup which they get underway with the opening game of the tournament against Mali on 10 January.

The hosts will then face Malawi and Algeria in their other Group A games.
