Ghana join Mali, Egypt, Senegal, Morocco and DR Congo as teams qualifed for the next round as group winners.

Ghana had a slim margin to have won. A draw alone could have cause Ghana a lot in the World Cup Qualifiers.

Ghana and DR Congo were the big winners from Sunday’s 2022 World Cup Qualifying action, with the two teams securing advancement into the final phase on the road to Qatar.

Ghana squeezed through by the narrowest of margins, as a controversial Andre Ayew penalty saw them defeat South Africa 1-0 at Cape Coast Sports Stadium in the headline night match.

The result left the Black Stars and Bafana level at the top of Group G on 13 points apiece and with the same goal difference (+4), but the West African side’s extra goal (7 to 6) through the course of six group matches proved the key tie breaker to send them through to the playoffs in March next year.

Both Ghana and DR Congo are qualified for the final round up.

DR Congo too has since 1974 never apeared in the World Cup. The win is a big win for DR Congo.

DRC made full use of home advantage at Stade Des Martyrs in Kinshasa in an afternoon clash, defeating Benin 2-0 to leapfrog to the top of Group J. An early penalty from Dieumerci Mkobani set the Leopards on their way, and a second from Ben Malango with just over a quarter hour of regulation time to play sealed the deal.

The other night match saw Senegal (who had already secured progression last month) underline their pre-eminence in Group H with a 2-0 win over Congo in Thies, as Ismaila Sarr’s first-half brace proved the difference between the teams.
