AFCON

African qualifiers heats up

2022 FIFA World Cup African qualifiers continue on Saturday as nations seek to make their intentions clear as far as qualifying for the global football showpiece intensifies.

BAHIR DAR - Group leaders South Africa travel to Bahir Dar to face an Ethiopian side that is looking to cause an upset.

On top of group G, South Africa will be regarded as favorites although they are on the road this time around. But the home side cannot be taken lightly as a win for Ethiopia will see them top the group if Ghana fail to beat Zimbabwe.

Bafana Bafana currently top the group with four points and are the only side in Group G yet to concede a goal, something that Ethiopia will be wary of.

CAPE COAST - A wounded Ghana side will welcome the winless Zimbabwe to the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

Coming into the game after a defeat against Ethiopia, Zimbabwe will be looking to get off the mark and have a chance to fight for top spot in Group G. For Ghana, a defeat in Johannesburg against South Africa was a setback that they need to forget quickly.

Zimbabwe are the only side in the Group that are yet to score a goal hence a defeat in Ghana will put them on the brink of elimination.

AGADIR - Two winless sides in the form of Guinea and Sudan collide in Agadir as both nations look to get their first maximum points of the qualifying round.

Playing at home and still having a game in hand will put Guinea in the favorites spot while Sudan will be under pressure to get three points as failure to win will mathematically mean that they are out of the qualifying round. 

With just one point in three outings, the writing is on the wall for Sudan that an early elimination is imminent.
