North Africans Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt are in cruise control of their World Cup 2022 destiny after snatching vital wins in the first legs of the African play offs.
Algeria beat Cameroon 1-0 away in Douala with the lone goal scored by Islam Slimani.
In Bamako, Mali’s Moussa Sissako had a day to forget as he scored an own goal that gave Tunisia a vital away win before he was sent off.

Egypt were the other winners on the day dominated by North Africans as they edged African champions 1-0 in Cairo.
Saliou Ciss own goal in the opening minutes decided the closely contested repeat of the Afcon final seven weeks ago.
Tarik Tissuodali scored a late equaliser to cancel out an early Yoane Wissa goal.
