The final day of group stage qualifiers threw up some entertaining clashes, with the last four play-off spots up for grabs at the time.

One big nation that will not be competing at the World Cup next year is Ivory Coast, who suffered a 1-0 loss to Cameroon in their top-of-the-table clash.

The Indomitable Lions thus booked their spot in the play-off round, while the Elephants have now failed to qualify for two successive World Cups.
