Egypt will play Senegal in the final African qualifying round for the FIFA World Cup. The draw, held in Douala, Cameroon, on Saturday 22 January, also pitted Cameroon beside Algeria, Ghana vs Nigeria, DR Congo, and Morocco, and Mali opposite Tunisia.

The 10 sides that qualified for the World cup were divided into two levels built on the official FIFA ranking, available in November 2021. The draw was shown by CAF Competitions Director Samson Adamu, helped by CAF legends El Hadji Diouf and Emmanuel Adebayor.
The five encounters, set for March, will see each team playing a home and away match, with the first leg match being held on the side whose name is first. So, Senegal will play its first match in Egypt. This is the last opportunity for the Football teams who want to arrive at the world’s most prestigious sports event. Only five African teams will qualify for the Qatar World Cup 2022 which is presently held in an Arab country for the first time.
All the sides, with the exclusion of DR Congo, are contributing to the current Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), also being frolicked in Cameroon. Algeria and Ghana departed from the group stages. Nigeria’s Osasu Obayiuwana, African football skilled, journalist, and broadcaster, predicts that Senegal, Cameroon, Morocco, Mali, and Nigeria will make it to the Qatar world cup.
“For the Egypt and Senegal game, it is Senegal. I’m sorry but Egypt is not in a good shape at all. Salah cannot do it alone.”
The Cameroon and Algeria match is a tough one, I would go for Cameroon however. As for the DRC versus Morocco, I think it would be the North Africans and I imagine them to be too strong for the DRC. I see Mali qualifying over Tunisia and I believe they have a serious chance of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup for the first time if they get a good outcome at home.
“For the Ghana-Nigeria match, it is Nigeria who will make it. But it might not be easy as I think as derby matches between these two teams can be tough. The fact that Ghana is in very bad shape at the moment might not matter in March,” Obayiuwana told Al-Ahram Weekly.
Zambia’s Desmond Katongo, international broadcaster, and media officer of the side, supposed he would pick Senegal to beat Egypt. For more know about FIFA World Cup Tickets click here.
“They are a team that has surged as a team from the last edition, still strong and have the players who are highly visible playing in Europe, so they don’t have that fear factor of playing in global football like the FIFA World Cup. For Egypt, I see them vexing to find their rhythm and that side keeps on refining. From the previous edition at home, they struggled and in this one, their pick-up was not that convincing,” Katongo told the Weekly.
In the second match, I will go for Algeria because they arrive back home wounded after the first round. They have ease in their team and would want to prove their point that their main stress was to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
The Ghana-Nigeria match would certainly pick Nigeria. They are quite a young cross that wants to win and have shown that hunger to succeed and win things. A sign has been seen by beating Egypt. Will certainly go for them. Between Morocco and DR Congo, I prize Morocco. They have vast skills. Qualifying to the FIFA World Cup you have to have a higher top side of skill and they are the favorites.
“For the Tunisia and Mali match, will pick Mali and the motive is that we have seen from this AFCON how smaller sides have proved that there are no minors any longer in these times. Though Tunisia is doing well, I still trust Mali would pull it off,” Katonga supposed.
Algeria will find it hard against Cameroon who hasn’t lost at home in years. The Algerians may suffer from a disaster of confidence after their early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations. I imagine Cameroon to go through given the fatal form of striker Vincent Aboubakar.
“Morocco should have no problems with DR Congo, as well as Nigeria who are far better from their opponents Ghana at the moment. Tunisia against Mali is an even game. Maybe the Carthage Eagles have more experience but Mali as well have the hunger to qualify for their first-ever FIFA World Cup.”
