Mali - the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Eagles" performed admirably in the African Cup of Nations this winter. They accumulated 5 points, including a victory over South Africa, to advance from the group stage. They then eliminated Burkina Faso in the first round of the playoffs. Moreover, they led against Ivory Coast in the quarterfinals before the hosts managed to equalize and win in extra time.

In March, Mali continued to delight their fans with 2-0 victories in both friendly matches against Mauritania and Nigeria. However, in the World Cup qualifiers, after a victory over Chad, they were held to a 1-1 draw by the modest Central African Republic in November.

Ghana - the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Black Stars" were once considered one of the strongest teams on the African continent and even participated in the last World Cup, securing a win. However, they had a poor showing in the African Cup of Nations this winter, losing 1-2 to Cape Verde, followed by draws with Egypt and Mozambique.

After the tournament, in March, Otto Addo's team lost 1-2 to Nigeria in a training camp in Morocco and drew with Uganda. In the World Cup qualifiers last autumn, after a 1-0 home win against Madagascar, they lost by the same score to the Comoros Islands.
