African World Cup Qualifiers Wrap

After an action packed Saturday in the African World Cup qualifiers we saw 32 goals scored across 11 fixtures as seven teams booked their place in the final qualifying stage for the Brazil 2014.

The early matches saw Group A in action and despite an emphatic 4-1 win by South Africa over Botswana it was not enough to see them top the group. Instead, Ethiopia came from a goal down to beat the Central African Republic 2-1 and consequently top the group on 13 points.

The next match of the day saw Angola thump Liberia 4-1 in a match that had little effect on Group J as neither could qualify for the next stage. Instead, we had to wait for the last match of the day to see Senegal slip into the final qualifying stages with a slender 1-0 win over Uganda which left them four points cleat at the top of the group.

Nigeria’s place in the final round of qualifying was already sealed, but they still produced a polished performance in a 2-0 win over Malawi that saw the Super Eagles on 12 points in Group F and uncatchable.

Group E produced some drama on the day as one of three teams could have qualified from that group. In the end it was Burkina Faso who progressed as a 54th minute Prejuce Nakoulma goal handed them a slender 1-0 win over Gabon. Playing at the same time Congo came from behind twice to draw 2-2 with Niger. The results in that group meant that Burkina Faso topped Group E with 12 points, closely followed by Congo on 11 points and Gabon on seven.

In Group B Tunisia progressed into the next stages of World Cup qualifying despite a 2-0 loss to Cape Verde while Sierra Leone played to an entertaining 3-2 win over Equatorial Guinea. Tunisia topped the group on 11 points followed by Cape Verde on nine and Sierra Leone on eight.

The final matches of the day did not really have any bearing as Group B was already decided. Ivory Coast topped that group on 13 points and concluded their qualifying round with a 1-1 draw against Morocco while Gambia beat Tanzania 2-0.
