Sako's Mali Lose In Qualifier

15 November 2015

Bakary Sako played in Mali's surprise 2-1 defeat against Botswana in the first leg of their second round qualifier for the 2018 World Cup Russia.

Botswana were 2-0 up within 24 minutes, with goals from Tapiwa Gadibolae and Joel Mogorosi. Mali, who are ranked 42 places higher than the southern African country, responded in the second half and pulled a goal back through Samba Sow but will have to use their home advantage in the second-leg if they are to win the tie.
