By winning over Togo (1-3), Egypt took a big step towards qualifying for the finals of CAN 2022. For its part, Nigeria was once again held in check by Sierra Leone (0-0).
Deprived of its star Mohamed Salah, infected by the coronavirus, Egypt had no trouble getting rid of Togo, this Tuesday in Lomé, winning (1-3) thanks to the achievements of Magdi Kafsha (18th, 0-2), Sherif (0-2, 32nd) and Trezeguet (0-3, 52nd). The Sparrowhawks saved the honor at the very end of the game through Nya-Vedji (1-3, 90th + 3). A precious success for the Pharaohs who come back up to the Comoros in this group G, with 8 units on the clock, just two days from the end of these qualifiers.
Nigeria is also getting closer
After their crazy draw against Sierra Leone (4-4), last Friday, Nigeria once again shared the points on Tuesday against this same formation of Sierra Leone (0-0). The Super Eagles still keep the lead of Group L, with 8 points, keeping five lengths ahead of their opponent day (3rd). Qualification is close but not yet confirmed. As a reminder, the first two from each group will participate in CAN 2022 organized in Cameroon.
