[Mis à jour le 22 janvier 2022 à 17h15] While the Europe zone will offer us the clash between Portugal and Italy, the draw for the World Cup play-offs for the Africa zone took place this Saturday, 22 January. Following their surprise ouster from CAN 2022, Algeria will face Cameroon to qualify for the year-end World Cup in Qatar. Another clash during its play-offs, between Egypt and Senegal, will see two Liverpool stars, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, compete. While they have already faced each other in CAN 2022 (1–0 win for Mali), Tunisia and Mali will be opposed again. The play-offs will be played in March in a round-trip format.
