2026 World Cup qualifiers: Playing our home games away from home a problem – Sudan coach Kwesi Appiah

Published on: 12 June 2024

Sudan national team coach Kwesi Appiah says playing their home games away from home because of the war situation has been a problem.

Despite these problems, Sudan are unbeaten in their four 2026 World Cup qualifiers, winning three of those games and drawing one.

This impressive run of form has propelled Sudan to the top of Group B, accumulating 10 points and placing them two points ahead of Senegal, the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations winners.

“The major problem has been all our home games are also away. Because we have to travel to Libya to play our two home games,” Appiah told Collins Okinyo.

“We even don't know yet where we will be sent to play our next games. The other side of it is, I would say the players have done well so far.

“The first two games that we played, we were fortunate to have three professionals.”

Looking ahead, Sudan will face Senegal in their next qualifier, aiming to solidify their position at the top of the group.
