Senegal approaches the World Cup: Sadio Mané and company advanced in the Africa Qualifiers

The Qatar 2022 Qualifiers are still being played and in Africa the picture is becoming clearer with some possible qualifiers. The Senegal team took an important step in seeking to get into the World Cup, as they managed to advance to the playoffs stage in Africa. So far, the host country and Germany are the only confirmed attendees.

The team, which has Sadio Mané as one of its great stars, was active this Tuesday, visiting Namibia on date 4 of Group H. The ‘Lions’ were solid again and headed to victory with a resounding 3-1 , thanks to the hat-trick scored by Famara Diedhiou.

The victory kept those led by Aliou Cissé at the top of the standings, now with 12 points, and the most important thing is that they achieved the first goal towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup: they will play the last round of the process of ranking next year.

According to the formation of the Qualifiers in Africa, the leaders of the 10 groups will advance to the third stage, in which they will have to face in a direct elimination with another selected from the same continent. The matches will be back and forth, securing a ticket to the World Cup for the winners.

Senegal’s team will have to wait until the end of this group round to meet their potential rivals. Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli), Keita Balde (Cagliari), Ismaila Sarr (Watford) and Edouard Mendy (Chelsea) are some of the stars of a team full of stars. Without a doubt, they are candidates to classify.

Morocco can also advance

The Moroccan team lives a similar case to Senegal, given that they have won all their matches so far and on the fourth date they only need to beat Guinea on a visit to ensure their mathematical classification to the playoffs. The Moroccan team, which was present at Russia 2018, is another favorite to get a ticket to Qatar 2022.
