African giants eye final round spots

07 June 2013, 12:03

Africa - With just three games remaining in the third round of African qualifiers for the 2014 Fifa World Cup Brazil™, several favourites are in danger of missing out on a ticket - even before the final round of qualifying commences.

North African giants Tunisia and Egypt, as well as surprise package Congo could become the first countries to book their place in the final round of qualifying should results go their way this weekend. The ten group winners will advance to the third round, where they will be drawn into five ties, with the winners of the two-legged matches qualifying for Brazil.

When the draw for the second round of African qualifiers was made, Congo were placed in pot four as one of the weakest teams in the draw. This weekend the Red Devils could become the first African country to book their place in the final round of qualifying, leaving them just two games away from a first-ever appearance at the Fifa World Cup. Ahead of a tricky away match in Gabon they lead Group E by six points and would qualify with a win if the match between Niger and Burkina Faso ended in a draw.
