Mali look to overcome disastrous first leg result to upstage Tunisia and reach first World Cup

Mali have put a nightmare result from their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying playoff first leg against Tunisia in the rear view and are only focused on taking down the Carthage Eagles on their home ground Tuesday. A catastrophic stretch at the end of the first half saw young center back Moussa Sissako put the ball into his own net before getting a straight red card minutes later to doom Les Aigles to a 1-0 defeat at home, but despite not being available for the second leg the 21-year-old praised Malian supporters for being supportive after the loss in Bamako.

The visitors to Tunis full believe they are capable of overturning the deficit in Tunis with captain Hamari Traoré stating the team “has the means and the will to succeed”. In form goalkeeper Ibrahim Mounkoro will look to replicate an excellent performance from the first leg for a talented side that now features Everton midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré, who rejected multiple offers to play for the country of his parents until the 29-year-old accepted for the crucial occasion.
