World Cup 2022 (Q): Togo already out, Rwanda does not advance

The first two matches of the 2 nd day of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers on the program this Sunday led to poor performances by Togo and Rwanda at home, who are already seeing their dream of a World Cup strongly compromised.

Togo 0-1 Namibia (Group H)

After their defeat against Senegal (0-2), Togo missed the opportunity to revive by losing to Namibia (0-1) at home at the Stade de Kégué. Elmo Kambindu scored the only goal of the game with a crossbar (0-1, 53 th ), while Limbondi, who had the ball break to toe, then found the post. With 4 points behind Namibia and potentially 6 over Senegal who travels to Congo on Tuesday, Paulo Duarte’s Hawks are already in bad shape since only the first place in the group qualifies for the play-offs.

Rwanda 1-1 Kenya (Group E)

The situation is hardly more encouraging for Rwanda, held in check by Kenya (1-1) in Kigali. After their loss to Mali (1-0), the Amavubi were disillusioned when Michael Olunga quickly opened the scoring for the Harambee Stars (0-1, 9 th ). Abdul Rwatubyaye quickly equalized (1-1, 20 th ), but this is not enough to revive the Rwandans. Nor does he really do the business of the Kenyans who concede a second consecutive draw. Uganda and Mali meet on Monday in the group’s other match.
