Mali Beat Rwanda To Top Group E

The ongoing first phase of the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers have seen Mali take lead in the group E after defeating Rwanda 1-0.

Adam Traore scored the all-important goal in the 19th minute of the game. This happened after a miscommunication between defender Bryan Ngwabije and the goal keeper Emery Mvuyekure.

Mali missed the opportunity to double the scored after Yannick Mukunzi brought down Moussa Djenepo in the penalty area. Mvuyekure managed to save the resultant spot kick.

Amavubi played much better in the second half despite his failure to find the back of the net.

Meanwhile, the East African neighbors Uganda and Kenya will face off in the other Group E encounter at Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi. The game will take place on Thursday, 2nd September 2021.

After that, Uganda will host Mali on Monday, 6th September 2021 at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

Only one team from each group will qualify for the third round fixtures as forty national teams vying for 10 available places.
