Match Date: 09 September 2013 (local time)

Venue: Omdurman

 

Despite failing to qualify for the World Cup, the Falcons of Jediane are determined to clinch a victory all in the name of honor and pride.   

 

Lesotho

The Likeuenas’ bid for World Cup has already ended long before the match against Sudan was organized.

 

Pushed to the bottom in the group stage of the African World Cup qualifier, the squad simply plays for pride and honor’s sake. But on the brighter side of things, the encounter shall add more exposure to the squad and the experiences gained can be used as a benchmark for future World Cup endeavors.

 

Sudan

Like Lesotho, the Falcons of Jediane has also failed to qualify for the awaited tournament. Likewise, what matters to the squad is how they shall honor their native land.

 Sudan's national football team

Sudan joins Lesotho in the bottom pit of the group. With only a few games left, it is impossible for the club to contend against Zambie and group leader, Ghana. Again, everything that will transpire into the match is valuable only in terms of collecting more strategic pitch approaches and maneuvers.

 

FIFA online betting tip:   Sudan overtakes Lesotho with a goal

Sudan’s past performance in the qualifiers show that they are capable of overcoming Lesotho. Out of the 5 matches it participated, the Falcons of Jediane lost thrice but managed to force a draw twice.

 

The result of Lesotho’s past matches are also similar to Sudan. However, the latter has a much better goal difference, which implies that it can defend the ball more effectively and at the same time, score.

 

There is also a possibility for it to end in a draw since both teams are determined to add more points under its belt. Sudan, however, has more experience having been a regular face in the African Cup of Nation.

 

As for Lesotho’s part, the squad will still require more friendlies and exposure to strengthen its flank.
