In Group F, the Pharaohs of Egypt opened their qualification campaign with a 1-0 win over Angola at home. They are in the group against Angola, Libya, and Gabon.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah was absent for duty due to United Kingdom coronavirus travel restrictions to travel ‘red list countries.

Group E, Adama Traoré scored the game only goal in their group opener as host Mali registered their opening 1-0 win over Rwanda at Grand Stade d’Agadir in Morocco.

In Group I, Joseph Mendes’ late equaliser denied Guinea an opening win away from home at Stade Olympique, Nouakchott.

Guinea took the lead through Francois Kamano, but host Guinea-Bissau rallied late on to restore parity through Joseph Mendes.
