Uganda out as penultimate World Cup qualifier concludes

A thrilling climax is expected today when Groups A, B, C and D conclude the penultimate stage of the 2022 Africa World Cup qualifiers.
Six nations have already reached the final qualification round with Ghana and DR Congo joining Egypt, Mali, Morocco and Senegal.
Uganda is however among the multitude of nations that had already been eliminated going into match-day six action against Mali.
And they lost their final group game going down 1-0 to Mali. Kalifa Coulibaly scored the game’s only goal with a looping header that beat goalkeeper Ismail Watenga off Moussa Doumbia's freekick.
Mali, consequently ended their campaign on 16 points without conceding any goals, and left some of their big hitters like the three of their four Traores and Cheikh Kouyate on the bench.
Uganda meanwhile finished second with nine points.
Action continues today with Group A which has the campaign's top scorers with 23 goals in Algeria, in direct competion with Burkina Faso for top spot.
Any draw in Algiers today would confirm Algeria's progress while only victory for Burkina Faso will see them through.
 Three teams remain in contention in Group B, where Zambia, Equatorial Guinea and leaders Tunisia could progress.
A win will see Tunisia through but a draw, in addition to Equatorial Guinea beating eliminated Mauritania, would see Guinea progress as table leaders to the playoffs.
Group C serves us a direct competition between hosts Nigeria and Cape Verde with the former needing just a draw to progress.
