Adebayor Zakari Adje scored a hat-trick for Niger in 7-2 win over Djibouti.

It was a day of dead rubber CAF second round 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying action across the African continent on Monday, 15 November.


Kenya ended their campaign on a high with a 2-1 win over Rwanda at Nyayo National Stadium.

The Harambee Stars had been winless in the campaign leading into the match in Nairobi, but made sure to end on a high with a hard fought victory over their east African rivals.

Michael Olunga and Richard Odada found the back of the net in the opening 15 minutes for Kenya before what proved a consolation strike for Amavubi, netted by Olivier Niyonzima.

Peter Shalulile won but then missed a penalty in Namibia’s 1-0 loss to Togo at Orlando Stadium. The Mamelodi Sundowns forward failed to convert from the spot in the first half and was made to rue that miss when Placca Fessou netted a late winner for the Sparrowhawks.

Adje scored three times and Ibrahim Issa netted a late brace for Niger in a thumping Group A win over Djibouti in NIamey.

Elsewhere, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan played out to a 0-0 draw in Morocco.

Full list of results, 15 November 2021:

Kenya 2-1 Rwanda

Namibia 0-1 Togo

Guinea-Bissau 0-0 Sudan

Niger 7-2 Djibouti
