By Agency

It was a tough night for Uganda’s soccer fans as Algeria secured a 2-1 win against the Uganda Cranes in the fourth group match of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Ugandan side had high hopes after their Friday win against Botswana, aiming to defeat the Desert Foxes and claim the top spot in their group.

Despite an early lead, the Ugandan team saw their World Cup qualifying dreams take a hit as Algeria staged a comeback.

The win helped Algeria consolidate their position at the top of Group G with nine points, followed closely by Mozambique, who also have nine points but a lower goal difference. Botswana, Guinea, and Uganda each have six points.

Under the current qualification format, the leading team from each of the nine groups will automatically qualify for the World Cup.

Additionally, the four best runners-up will compete in an African playoff, with the winners advancing to the inter-confederation playoffs scheduled for March 2026.
