World Cup

Mali became the third African team to advance to the last ten of World Cup qualifiers as Ghana suffered a setback. 

Group E is already settled with a game to spare following mixed results on Thursday. Harambee Stars were held to a 1-1 draw by Uganda Cranes at St Mary’s Kitende, leaving the hosts with minimal chances of securing a spot in the World Cup Qualifiers.

Mali needed a win to progress and yes they did as they thrashed ten-man Rwanda at Kigali Arena and joined the likes of Morocco and Senegal.

Ghana experienced a major setback in its quest to make it to Qatar next year after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Ethiopia, a result that opened the door for South Africa to take a three-point lead over the Black Stars in Group G with just one game to go.

Egypt plays on Friday and a win in Angola, which has been eliminated, would confirm its place in the playoffs.
