second victory for Algeria, which stands out in

Already as the winner over Uganda in the first match, the Algerian team made two passes on Wednesday, June 8, by winning in Tanzania by the same score (2-0). Fennecs are alone in the top of Group F in the CAN 2023 qualifier. In the second match this second day, Uganda and Niger stood back to back (1-1).

Only two days played in group F who qualified for 2023 African Cup of Nations, and Algeria is calm. The work is of course not finished, but Djamel Belmadi and his players have got off to a good start, especially after the last two bitter failures (elimination in the first round of CAN 2022, defeat in the qualifiers for the WC 2022). The victory of the first day v Uganda at home (2-0) was confirmed outside this June 8th.

Bensebaini and Amoura make the difference for Fennecs At the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar es Salaam, visitors were able to demonstrate surgical efficiency during a rather monotonous first period. While the Fennecs thought they would get a penalty before the break, it was at another stop that they found the fault. Youcef Belaïli kicked a free kick, Aïssa Mandi saved the ball with an air gesture, and Ramy Bensebaini opened the scoring with a header (45th + 2).

Thanks to Borussia Mönchengladbach’s sixth international goal, Algeria took over Tanzania and ended up in an ideal position. With this lead, she was able to handle more in the second half, play more in defense and counterattack. The lack of bites from the Tanzanian invaders made it easier for them. This strategy was successful as Mohamed Amoura started a counterattack in the last minute and found the post first before scoring the goal that sealed the success of his team (89th).

Uganda barely advances, Niger fragile second Earlier on Wednesday, June 8, Uganda hosted Niger, still as part of this second day in Group F qualifiers. At home, at St Mary’s Stadium-Kitende in Entebbe, Cranes wanted to resolve themselves after their initial defeat in Algeria. Their dominance was rewarded at the end of the first period. While they have so far stumbled upon Kassaly Daouda, the Nigerian goalkeeper, they could count on a reversal of fate to unblock the situation. The unscrewed center of Milton Karisa lobbied the doorman (43rd).

But the Nigerians reappeared during a weak time of the meeting and approached the last quarter. Mahamadou Sabo, at the entrance to the area, played the Ugandan defense before firing a very nice shot that crept straight into the upper corner (71st). Forced to a draw, Uganda shares last place with Tanzania (1 point, one draw and one loss, -2 goal difference). Niger is second with 2 points. Algeria has already taken the lead with its 6 points at Next meeting: Algeria-Niger and Uganda-Tanzania, during the third day, currently scheduled for September.
