The Central African Republic played a 1:1 draw in Douala, Cameroon, against Cape Verde in the first match as the qualification path to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. They were hosting the game in Douala due to the non-approval of the Bangui Stadium. Coach Raoul Savoy has a lot of problems in the squad, because due to injuries, positive players on Covid 19, or travel bans due to Covid 19 restrictions out of the team are 14 players. These players are Benamna (Stumptown Athletic), Enza-Yamissi (Mulhouse), Kethevoama (Balikesirspor), Lembet (Sedan), Mafouta (Xamax), Mboumbouni (Cholet), Zahibo (Dundalk), Yamissi (UNFP), Tonnerre Kaya (Tempete MOCAF), Samolah (Tempete MOCAF), Beni Mohanda (Tempete MOCAF), Pelembi (Anges Fatima), Mabide (Kawkab Marrakech), and Dimokoyen. Most of the players were standard in the national team in the last qualifications and the squad is composted by pure players from the local league. Liberia is a very mediocre African team, but have some nice results, like a win against Zimbabwe or Senegal. Their offensive power is really good with Kosiah (Breda), Njie (Aarau), and some other players who play abroad. They should dominate this game and take the three points against a team that is winless in the last 8 matches and without the key players. These match is also played at Stade de la Reunification in Cameroon.
