AFCON 2025: Liberia, Eswatini, and Chad lead the pack


Chad has joined Liberia and Eswatini in the driver’s seat of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Morocco 2025 qualifiers, following their narrow 1-0 victory over Mauritius on Friday.

In an intense clash on Friday, Chad managed to secure a crucial win over Mauritius, propelling them into contention alongside Liberia and Eswatini.

This victory adds another layer of excitement to the tournament, as all three teams now hold favorable positions in their respective groups.

Liberia had set the tone earlier in the week with a convincing 2-0 win over Djibouti, while Eswatini showcased their dominance with a resounding 3-0 victory over Somalia.

These results had already placed both teams in advantageous positions going into the return legs.

The slim margin of victory for Chad underscores the competitiveness of the qualifiers, with every goal proving to be pivotal in determining the outcome.

Coach Kevin Nicaise’s side will now focus on maintaining their lead as they prepare for a challenging return leg against Mauritius on Tuesday, 26 March.

Meanwhile, in other fixtures, Sao Tome and Principe and South Sudan battled to a goalless draw in Berkane. While this result might have left both teams eager for a decisive victory, it sets the stage for an intriguing rematch as they aim to secure a spot in the next phase of the qualifiers.

As the preliminary stage unfolds, attention now turns to the upcoming return leg fixtures, where teams will strive to cement their positions or mount comebacks to keep their AFCON dreams alive.
