African Nations Cup hosts Angola drew 1-1 against Gambia in their final warm-up match in Portugal on Sunday, the state-run Angop news agency reported.

Angola, who play in the tournament's opening game next Sunday against Mali in Luanda, had to come from behind after Ebrima Sawaneh gave the Gambians a fourth minute lead.

Former Manchester United striker Manucho, now playing club football in Spain, equalised in the 29th minute. The tournament runs from Jan 10-31.
