The 1era CAN 2021 playoff day was on Thursday in Group G, with two unexpected results!
The biggest surprise came from Lome where Togo lost at home against Comoros (0-1). Two months later, the Coelacanths took their revenge on the Sparrowhawks who eliminated them from the race at the 2022 World Cup in September. Dominating but lacking efficiency in the first period, the men of Claude Le Roy were surprised at the return of the locker room on a goal of former Lorient Faïz Selemani after a good job of El Fardou Ben Nabouhane (50e). The Togolese then threw all their forces into the battle to equalize, but without success, Fo-doh Laba finding the bar. At the end of the 1era day, it is the men of Amir Abdou who enthroned at the head of the group!
The Comorians are ahead of Egypt and Kenya who were neutralized in Alexandria (1-1) in the other match of the group. For the first official mach Hossam Al-Badry, the Pharaohs, who were without Mohamed Salah, injured, sign a new counter-performance at home.
While the Harambee Stars were the most dangerous, Kahraba thought he had done the hardest by intercepting an Ouma pass to open the score before half-time (42).e), but a missed pass from Elneny benefited Olunga who equalized in the second half (67e). The Egyptians then pushed to regain the advantage but, like this huge double rescue on the line against Trezeguet and Elneny, the Kenyans stood firm and clinched a great draw on the field of the favorite of the group.
