The Angolan team, winners of the 2011 edition, now have the opportunity to recover the title lost in the last edition to São Tomé e Príncipe. This year, the São Toméan team were eliminated by Guinea-Bissau by 1-4.

In the other semi-final Cape Verde defeated Guinea-Bissau by 2-0, however not enough for the pass to the next stage, since the former needed to win the game for more than two goals difference.

Meanwhile, Cape Verde have presented a protest, alleging wrong interpretation of the regulations, thus the other finalist will only be found after a decision has been taken regarding the complaint.

The “Angola Avante” tournament had the participation of Angola, Brazil, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and São Tomé e Príncipe.
