This match will be the first meeting of the rivals on the football field; the lot has never brought them together before.

Chad vs Mauritius Preview 

Chad Preview

Chad is among the main outsiders in the tournaments where the team manages to get into. In the previous qualification, Chad finished last in the group, with only 1 point scored and -10 difference between scored and conceded goals. The only point the team got was due to the draw with Guinea (1-1), which can be counted as a serious achievement given that Guinea finished the group in second place. Chad is currently participating in the qualification for the World Cup and is among Comores, Mali, Madagascar, Ghana, and Central African Republic in the Group I. The team has already played two rounds and lost them, first to Mali (3-1) and then to Madagascar (3-0). Overall, the team has not won in a home match for 6 matches, with the last win being secured against Egypt (1-0) in a sensational match back in 2015.

Mauritius Preview 

Mauritius is a real champion, and a two-time one. However, these titles were issued at the Indian Ocean Island Games. There is also a serious experience of participating in the main draw of the Africa Cup of Nations, but it was 50 years ago, in 1974, and Mauritius then lost to everyone in a row. It was not possible to repeat it to the next generations, let alone enter the World Cup. In the last preliminary round of the African Cup of Nations, Mauritius lost to Sao Tome and Principe (3-3, 0-1) on aggregate, failing to qualify for the qualifying stage. Mauritius also participates in the qualification for the next World Cup. The new selection for the World Cup began with the loss to Cameroon (3-0) and draw with Angola (0-0).
