Five Africa Cup of Nations qualifying facts


Five 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying competition facts ahead of matchday 6 this weekend:

— Group K winners Senegal boast the only perfect record after five wins over Burundi (3-1, 2-0), Niger (2-0, 2-1) and Namibia (2-0). They should make it six straight wins when they host Namibia.

— Group J winners Algeria are the leading team scorers with 19 goals from five qualifiers, including seven at home against Ethiopia despite failing to convert a penalty kick.

— Congo Brazzaville striker Ferebory Dore scored the most individual goals in a game — all four in the 4-2 away triumph over eventual Group E winners Guinea-Bissau.

— Mali, Burkina Faso, Morocco (five matches each), Egypt (four), Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone (three each) had the most difficult defences to penetrate, conceding just one goal each.

— Tanzania are the only country who have failed to score, firing blanks against Egypt (twice) and Nigeria despite boasting star strikers in Mbwana Aly Samatta and Thomas Ulimwengu.
