2026 World Cup qualifiers: Kwesi Appiah’s Sudan remain top of Group B after 3-0 win over South Sudan

James Kwesi Appiah’s team, Sudan, has maintained their lead in Group B of the 2026 African FIFA World Cup qualifiers after securing a 3-0 victory over South Sudan on Tuesday afternoon in Juba.

Sudan has yet to suffer a defeat in the qualifiers, securing three wins and one draw, accumulating ten points in total.

This places them two points ahead of Senegal, who currently occupy the second position in the group with eight points. This achievement is remarkable, especially considering the absence of a competitive league in Sudan due to the ongoing conflict in the country.

Despite not being able to play their home matches in Sudan due to the war, the Falcons of Jediane are displaying resilience and managing to secure victories.

In Tuesday’s match, Sudan took the lead in the third minute of first-half added time courtesy of Waliedin Khidir, assisted by Abdelrazig Omer. Yasi Mozamil extended their lead six minutes into the second half before star player Mohamed Abdelrahman sealed the victory with a goal in the 78th minute.
