World 2022 (Q): Niger overthrows Djibouti and joins Algeria

Beaten by Burkina Faso (0-2) for its first match in group A of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Niger recovered well by disposing of Djibouti (4-2), who “received” this Monday in a match relocated to Rabat in Morocco as part of the 2 th day.

Farah Ali Anas (33) had yet opened the scoring for the Sharks in the Red Sea, but a brace express the inevitable Victorian Adebayor striker Cities FC Legon in Ghana, in six minutes after the break (49 th , 55 e ), allowed the MENA to turn things around. Mohamed Djibo (64th sp) and Mahamadou Sabo (67th) even drove the point home in favor of Jean-Michel Cavalli’s men, then reduced to ten following the expulsion of Hassane Adamou (85th) and who conceded the reduction of the Hassan Wassama score (90 th ).

With this success, Niger temporarily returns to the level of Algeria, which faces Burkina Faso on Tuesday in Morocco. For Julien Mette’s men, swept 8-0 by Algeria last Thursday, it is on the other hand a second consecutive defeat, but the Djiboutians are far from being ridiculous and confirm their progress.
