2022 World Cup: Mali frustrated in Uganda as Niger win

Uganda managed to force a goalless draw with visitors Mali in Kampala in Group E of 2022 World Cup qualifying on Tuesday.

The Cranes played the final 24 minutes of the game with 10 men following the dismissal of Murushidi Jjuko for a second bookable offence.

Despite the draw, Mali remain top of the group with four points from their two matches so far while Uganda have two points from two goalless draws.

Kenya also have two points while Rwanda are bottom, with the single point they earned on Sunday when the two sides drew 1-1 in Kigali.

In Group A, Niger came from behind to beat Djibouti 4-2 and, like Uganda, ended the match with just 10 players on the pitch.

Thrashed 8-0 by African champions Algeria on Thursday, Djibouti took a surprise lead after 32 minutes through Norwegian-born Anas Farah Ali.

Niger fought back after half-time with four goals, including a brace for Ghana-based Victorien Adebayor in the opening 11 minutes.

Amadou Djibo Wonkoye, who plays in Guinea for Horoya, then added a third from the penalty spot in the 64th minute with Amadou Sabo adding the fourth minutes later.

In the 83rd minute, Hassane Amadou was shown a straight red card and Djibouti made use of their one-man advantage to score a second through Warsama Hassan Houssein.

The match was played in the Moroccan city of Rabat as Djibouti’s facilities do not meet international standards.
