Mali’s campaign in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers has been marred by disappointment, prompting team captain Hamari Traoré to voice his concerns regarding the challenges faced by the squad. The right-back, who represents Real Sociedad, did not mince words as he addressed the media following the team’s recent performances.

The Eagles’ journey in the qualifiers has been far from smooth sailing. A defeat against Ghana followed by a lackluster draw against Madagascar has left Mali searching for answers.

However, it’s not just on-field performance that Traoré highlighted; he shed light on the off-field challenges that have plagued the team’s preparation and morale.

One major setback was the series of flight postponements the team encountered due to adverse weather conditions, disrupting their travel plans and severely truncating their preparation time.

Traoré, in his impassioned address, urged the authorities to shoulder their responsibilities, emphasizing the significance of adequate preparation for such crucial matches.

In a statement quoted by Foot Mercato, Traoré expressed his frustration, stating, “Another new chaotic situation for our Malian selection.

Our players had to undergo a real journey to arrive in Johannesburg just a few hours before a crucial match.”

He stressed the importance of understanding the players’ perspective and providing optimal conditions for their performance, given the gravity of representing the nation on the international stage.

Despite the challenges faced, Traoré reaffirmed the team’s unwavering ambition to qualify for the 2026 World Cup, underscoring the collective desire to succeed for the people of Mali.

With Mali currently ranked fourth in their group after four matchdays, Traoré’s plea for improved conditions resonates as the team aims to regroup and refocus for the challenges ahead.
