Niger 0 – 2 UgandaGoals: Aziz Kayondo 17′, Joseph Ochaya 39′
They strived for that third goal that could have qualified them for the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire 2023, but the Cranes failed in this quest despite a 2-0 victory against Niger at the Grand Stade de Marrakech in Morocco.
Aware of the significance of this match, the Ugandans posed a physical challenge to Mena. In the 17th minute, well served at the entrance of the box, Aziz Kayondo unleashed a left-footed shot that crucified the Nigerian goalkeeper Naim Van Attenhoven.
The second goal was a carbon copy of the first, but with Joseph Ochaya providing the finishing touch. The score remained 2-0. Uganda, third in Group J, missed out on the opportunity by just one point.
Algeria 0 – 0 Tanzania

In this slow-paced match, the Taifa Stars held on for a commendable 0-0 draw. They will be the worthy representatives of East Africa in Côte d’Ivoire.
