MADAGASCAR COSAFA CASTLE CUP HISTORY
Madagascar played their first COSAFA Castle Cup tournament in 2002 when they narrowly lost on penalties to South Africa in the quarterfinals, having ousted Mauritius 3-2 in their very first game.
They reached the quarterfinals again the following year after another victory over the Mauritians, but then suffered four first round exits in a row between 2004 and 2007.
Their biggest victory in the competition came in 2007 when they thumped Seychelles 5-0 to finish third in their first round group.
They improved dramatically in 2008 when they came through a first round group that also included Swaziland, Seychelles and Mauritius, before a quarterfinal success over a young Angolan side.
They were narrowly beaten in the semifinals by Mozambique, finishing the tournament in fourth place.
They missed the 2009 and 2013 tournaments, but made a triumphant return in 2015 when they finished third, beating Botswana in the bronze-medal match.
The team picked up a win, draw and a defeat in the 2016 tournament played in Namibia and ecited in the first round.
