Guinea-Bissau and Ethiopia Play to a Goalless Draw in Group A – 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers

Guinea-Bissau and Ethiopia faced off in a tense Group A match during the 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, resulting in a goalless draw at Estadio 24 de Setembro in Bissau. The game marked a somewhat lackluster start for new Guinea-Bissau coach Luis Boa Morte, who was aiming for a victory in his debut match.

The match saw little action in the first half, with Guinea-Bissau managing the only shot on target, which was saved by Ethiopia’s goalkeeper. Despite both teams making changes in the second half, neither side was able to break the deadlock, resulting in a 0-0 draw.

Guinea-Bissau’s Mama Balde and Ethiopia’s Fetudin Jemal stood out with their defensive performances, but neither team could find the back of the net. The draw sees Guinea-Bissau move to second place in the standings, while Ethiopia remains winless in the group.

Next up, Ethiopia will face Djibouti away, while Guinea-Bissau will host Egypt in their upcoming matches. The teams will look to secure crucial points as they continue their journey in the 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
