AFCON

The African Country Who Won All Their Games And Another Not Conceding A Goal In The W/C Qualifiers

The World Cup qualifiers for African for the second stage is now done after all six round of matches across the ten Groups they were divided into. From each group, one country each would emerge as a table topper and after all, matches played the 10 through to the next round are Nigeria, Morocco, Algeria, Senegal, Mali, Cameroon, DR Congo, Egypt, Tunisia, Ghana. 

Analysis of the countries with the matches they played, two countries (Morocco and Mali) out of those ten stood out and here is why. 

Morocco 

In a group consisting of Sudan, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, the Atlas lions popularly called started their journey for the second stage of the qualifying against Sudan back in September which ended 2-0 in favour of them and with that, they took charge of the Group I by winning all their matches against the rest of the three countries. Morocco's six matches below that saw them finish with 18 points not losing or dropping a game. 

Morocco 2-0 Sudan

Morocco 5-0 Guinea-Bissau 

Guinea-Bissau 0-3 Morocco

Guinea 1-4 Morocco 

Sudan 0-3 Morocco

Morocco 3-0 Guinea

Any country who face Morocco in the third round for a ticket to the World Cup 2022 would have to be in their best form in the two-legged affairs come March. 

Mali 

In a group consisting of Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya, Mali's form in the second stage of the qualifier was an impressive one as they went on to win 5 matches with the only draw coming against Uganda away. Throughout their six matches, the Malians didn't concede any goal, keeping six clean sheets and are only the African country to do that. Here are their results of matches below. 

Not conceding a goal is something very good to achieve and if their defence should continue with that, any country they face would be one to reckon with.

What do you make of these two countries?
