Estádio Salazar 1968 - Mozambique
Opened in 1968 when Mozambique was still under Portuguese colonial rule the stadium was officially inaugurated with a match between the national teams of Portugal and Brazil. The Brazilians won 2-0 with goals from Rivelino and Jair.
In 1975 the stadium was the venue for Mozambique’s proclamation of independence from Portugal and was renamed Estadio da Machava - in 2005 the stadium was again renamed this time to the Independence Memorial Stadium. The stadium is home to 9-times Mozambique champions Ferroviario de Maputo.
