Egypt-Senegal and Cameroon-Algeria, in duels for tickets to Qatar-2022

One of the great stars of African football, Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mané, teammates at Liverpool, will not play the Qatar-2022 World Cup after Egypt and Senegal were paired in one of the five World Cup qualifying qualifiers for the finals of the year (November 21 to December 18).

It will not be easy for the Egyptian Pharaohs, the team with the most continental titles, against the Leones de Taranga, who in addition to Mané have the best goalkeeper of 2021 for FIFA, Edouard Mendy, with the Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly or the couple from PSG Abdou Diallo and Idrissa Gueye.

Another of the most interesting qualifiers will be the one between Cameroon and Riyad Mahrez’s Algeria, the current continental champion who has been the negative surprise of the current edition of the CAN, which is being played in Cameroon, by being eliminated in the first phase.

After the draw held this Saturday in Douala (outside the CAN), Ghana and Nigeria will play another ticket, as well as Morocco against Congo and Tunisia against Mali, the only selection of the 10 survivors that has never participated in a final phase of a World Cup.

These two-legged qualifiers will be played at the end of March and the five winners will be the African representatives at the World Cup.

– Qualifiers for the African qualifying zone for the Qatar-2022 World Cup (the first-place team will play the first leg at home):

Egypt – Senegal

Cameroon – Algeria

Ghana – Nigeria

DR Congo – Morocco

Mali – Tunisia

NOTE: The five winning teams of these two-legged qualifiers will qualify for the World Cup.
