Uganda – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Cranes" have never qualified for the World Cup. After appearing twice in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) following a long hiatus (exiting at the group stage in 2017 and reaching the Round of 16 two years later), they have since failed to qualify for continental tournaments.

In the current qualifiers, the team started last autumn with a win (against Somalia) and a loss (to Guinea). Recently, they resumed qualification by securing a home victory over Botswana thanks to a lone goal by Shaban in the second half.

Algeria – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Desert Foxes" seemed to regain form after a slump, remaining unbeaten throughout 2023. However, the winter AFCON was disastrous for them, with high-scoring draws against Angola and Burkina Faso and a shocking loss to Mauritania, which prevented them from advancing past the group stage.

Despite this, Riyad Mahrez and his team started their World Cup qualification campaign strongly last autumn. They convincingly defeated Somalia (3-1 at home) and Mozambique (2-0 away). However, in the third round, even an own goal by the opponent didn't help them secure points against Guinea, as they lost 1-2 at home.
