Three 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification (CAF) first-round first-leg matches are set to be played on Thursday.
Kick-off times in CAT.
The game of the day will be between Seychelles and Rwanda at the Stade Linité in the city of Victoria. The match will start at 14h00.
While Chad will welcome Sudan at the Stade Omnisports Idriss Mahamat Ouya in the city of N’Djamena. Kick-off is at 16h30.
Lastly, Zimbabwe will be away to Somalia at the El Hadj Hassan Gouled Aptidon Stadium in Djibouti. The encounter will kick-off at 17h00.
African Football takes a look at the players to watch out for in the three matches:
Nasr Eldin El Shigail – Sudan
The veteran midfielder remains an influential player in the Sudan squad despite being 34-years-old.
El Shigail, who was part of the Sudan squad which won the 2007 CECAFA Cup, is the team captain and he will be keen to lead the Falcons of Jediane to victory in Chad.
Admiral Muskwe – Zimbabwe
The England-based forward has been given a chance to impress after being left out of Zimbabwe’s squad which participated in the 2019 AFCON finals in Egypt.
Muskwe, who is on the books of former English champions Leicester City, will be eager to find the back of the net and help the Warriors secure a win over Somalia.
Meddie Kagere – Rwanda
The lethal forward has established himself as one of Rwanda’s key players having netted over 10 goals for the national team.
Kagere, who scooped the 2018/19 Tanzanian Premier League Golden Boot award, has the ability to inspire Amavubi to victory over Seychelles.
