Sudan head coach Kwesi Appiah has set his sights on guiding the team to the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals in Canada, Mexico, and the USA.

The Falcons of Jediane have never qualified for the global tournament, but the Ghanaian tactician has been mandated to ensure that the team books its place in the event.

The 63-year-old mentor, who was in charge of Ghana at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, is also hoping to guide Sudan to the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.

“The target I have been given is to build a team and ensure the team qualifies for the 2026 World Cup and the next edition of the Africa Cup of Nations,” Appiah said on Ghana Soccer Net.

“The only challenge is that there is no ongoing league due to the ongoing war which has forced them to operate from Saudi Arabia

“But I hope order and peace will be restored in the country.”

Sudan will take on Togo, DR Congo, Mauritania, Senegal and South Sudan in Group B of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
