AFCON QUALIFIERS: Rwanda handed tough draw


Housed in group L with Benin, Mozambique and Rwanda, three teams that missed TotalEnergies 2021 AFCON finals, it is clear that Senegal was not drawn in the toughest group.

If it is always important for one to respect his opponents especially on the continent, the reigning African champion and future World Cup participant, has inherited a more than playable group.

The draw

In addition to having missed the great celebration of African football where Senegal won their first Africa Cup of Nations title, the Senegalese team will go with a favorable bias against opponents they have beaten in the not so distant past. .

In Egypt, Idrissa Gana Gueye scored the goal (1-0) that sealed the elimination of the Squirrels in the quarter-finals of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Mozambique were beaten 2-0 in Dakar in the 2008 AFCON qualifiers, while Rwanda was defeated (2-0) at home by Senegal in a friendly in May 2016.
