Group A Djibouti 0-4 Algeria – Burkina Faso 1-1 Niger

Algeria proved too strong again for Djibouti as they extended their unbeaten run to 32 games win a 4-0 at Cairo International Stadium in Egypt on Friday in their 2022 World Cup qualifier.

However, the reigning African champions, who scored 12 goals over two legs against Djibouti, will only need to avoid a defeat at home against Burkina Faso on November 16 for a place in the final round of playoffs.

Youcef Belaili opened the scoring for Algeria in the 29th minute, before Mohamed Benrahma doubled their advantage in the 40th minute. Sofiane Feghouli and Islam Slimani wrapped the win in the 42nd and 86th minutes, respectively.

Elsewhere in the group, Niger held second-placed Burkina Faso to a 1-1 draw. Visitors Niger scored first in the 34th minute through Youssef Oumanou’s penalty before Issoufou Dayo’s 55th-minute penalty levelled things up ten minutes after the break.

Group F Angola 2-2 Egypt – Gabon 1-0 Libya

The Pharaohs of Egypt survived after coming from two goals down in Luanda on Friday to ensure a 2-2 draw against hosts Angola.

As a result, they booked a play-off final round qualification spot to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Group I Sudan 0-3 Morocco – Guinea 0-0 Guinea-Bissau
