The Central African Republic and Chad will battle for three points in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Wednesday. The hosts will be looking to build on the 4-0 victory they registered against Papua New Guinea in an international friendly during the last international window in March.

Christian-Theodor Yawanendji-Malipangou broke the deadlock in the 11th minute, while Tieri Godame added a hat-trick to inspire the rout.

Chad, meanwhile, came from behind to claim maximum points with a 2-1 away victory over Mauritius in the second leg of their 2025 Africa Cup of Nations preliminary qualification round. They went behind to Jeremy Villeneuve's 45th-minute strike. However, second-half goals from Charles Tchouplaou and Ousmane Hissein Hassan completed the comeback to help his nation advance with a 3-1 aggregate victory.

Les Sao will turn their focus to the World Cup qualifiers where their last game saw them suffer a 3-0 home defeat to Madagascar. Central African Republic shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw away to Mali.

The draw left Les Fauves in fifth spot in Group I, having garnered one point from two games. Chad are bottom of the group on zero points.
