Burkina Faso 1-2 Cape Verde

OUAGADOUGOU, March 26 (Reuters) - The Cape Verde Islands scored an unlikely away win in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday, beating Burkina Faso 2-1 to go second in the African Zone Group Two standings.

Striker Calo, who pays his club soccer in Qatar, scored both

goals in front of a shocked home crowd of around 25,000.

A determined midfield performance from the islanders earned

them a deserved win against a Burkina Faso side playing their

first match under new French coach Bernard Simondi.

Calo and his attacking partner Cafu, from Portuguese club

Boavista, made several incursions into the Burkina defence

before Calo opened the scoring in the 48th minute.

Burkina Faso came back into the match after the introduction

of youthful substitutes Patrick Zoundi and Henock Conombo, who

set up the equaliser for Moumouni Dagano in the 70th minute.

Calo, however, sealed victory after taking advantage of

another defensive slip to sneak home the winner in the 88th

minute.
