Angola in the 2006 World Cup

Federaçao Angolana de Futebol
Group D

Angola vs Portugal in Köln:
Angola's Fabrice Akwa said before the game that he wouldn't sign a contract for a draw against former colonial rulers. Maybe he should have done, although the score was kept to a respectable solitary goal.

Mexico vs Angola in Hannover:
After earning himself a yellow card for time wasting, João Ricardo went on to make two excellent saves to keep successive Mexican shots out, as the clock ticked down the final seconds.

Iran vs Angola in Leipzig:
Angola's slight chance of qualifying for the second round didn't last longer than 15 minutes as Sohrab Bakhtiarizadeh equalised for Iran; with a header from a corner.

Knockout Stage

Angola failed to qualify for the Second Round.
