Mali and Tunisia have added their names to the list of countries to compete in the next Africa Cup of Nations final on Tuesday, joining Algeria and 2019 runner-up Senegal, who booked Bath in the last two days.
Mali secured a top two finish in Group A after winning 2-1 in Namibia, where Sékou Koita and Moussa Doumbia scored in the first half. Two in group J.
Tunisia will play in the Cameroon finals 15 times in a row in 2022.
Egypt and Morocco also approached qualifying after performing positively on the streets on Tuesday.
Morocco’s Hakim Ziyech had another big impact as he defeated the Central African Republic 2-0 and passed the qualifying from Group E.
Ziyech’s 39-minute free kick jumped into the net from outside the box, claiming that his teammate Naif Agueld made a faint touch, but the effort seemed straight ahead without any help. Ziyech scored a goal.
The signing of the new Chelsea was made by Youssef En Nesiri at the very last moment.
Egypt, which is aiming for a record 25th appearance in the Cup of Nations final, is also in the middle of qualifying in Group G after defeating Togo 3-1.
Ghana may have passed the qualifying, but Mohammed Abdellaman won 1-0 in Khartoum against Sudan, returning the host to the top two battle.
Ghana has scored 9 points and shares the top spot with South Africa in Group C, but Sudan is only 3 points behind.
Nigeria was held for the second time in five days by Sierra Leone. This time around, it’s a slimy 0-0 stalemate in Freetown, in contrast to Sierra Leone’s thrilling comeback in a 4-4 draw last Friday.
Nigeria beat Benin, who drew 0-0 to Lesotho on Tuesday, by one point, with the other two countries scoring two points each.
Pace setters Madagascar and Ivory Coast scored 7 points in Group K after a 1: 1 draw in Antananarivo, but Ethiopia beat visitor Niger 3-0, just one point. I’m late.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo defeated Luanda’s neighbor Angola 1-0 in the 63rd minute after an accurate goal from Neskenskevano’s Magillan and outside the penalty area.
As a result, Congo is slightly behind Group D’s Gambia and Gabon, regaining qualifying opportunities.
The last two rounds of qualifying will take place in March. The top two players from each group will advance to the finals, with the exception of Group F. However, in Group F, only the highest non-Cameroon teams that are certified as hosts but are playing in qualifying will be certified.
