After crushing the Seychelles on the first day of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers with a 9-0, it was a victory that the Ivorians brought back from Tanzania against the Gambia.
For this second day, Christian Kouamé distinguished himself at the 45e minute by sending a ball into the back of the net just as the Gambian goalkeeper blocked an Ivorian shot. Just before, Kouamé had found the crossbar on a superb volley.
In the second half, Gambia had the possibility of equalizing after a header from Musa Barrow from a set piece (68e). The ball ended up in the side net. One of the rare opportunities for Gambia during this meeting.
Seko Fofana, the former Lens striker, sheltered the Ivorians with a powerful left strike thirty meters from the goal (86e). On the next day next June, the Elephants will host Gabon.
At the start of the day, Guinea-Bissau beat Djibouti (1-0), which is in last place in Group A, dominated by Egypt. Equatorial Guinea offered itself a second victory against Liberia.
