Flavio scores twice in Angolan win over Kenya

October 8, 2006

LUANDA, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Flavio scored twice as Angola beat Kenya 3-1 on Sunday to earn a second successive Group Six victory in their African Nations Cup qualifying campaign.

The Egyptian-based striker's first goal came eight minutes before the interval and his second in the 68th as Angola competed in their first home game since qualifying for this year's World Cup last October.

Portuguese-based substitute Mateus scored on the hour mark.

Angola won their first qualifier away against Swaziland last month and have a handy three-point lead in the standings. It was a second successive defeat for Kenya.
