MOST COMMENTED

The novelty of the World Cup 2010 qualifying draw in Africa is that World Cup 2010 host South Africa will take part in qualifying since the competition also serves as qualifying for the 2010 African Nations Cup. The Bafana Bafana were drawn with powerhouse Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone in the first group stage.

FIRST GROUP STAGE: Following a preliminary round, the 48 teams remaining teams were drawn in 12 groups of four. The 12 group winners and eight best runners-up advance to final stage;

FINAL GROUP STAGE: The 20 teams will be drawn in five groups of four. The five group winners qualify for the finals.

(Note: World Cup 2010 host South Africa takes part in the competition which also serves as the qualifying tournament for the Africa Nations Cup. If South Africa reaches the final stage, its matches will not count toward World Cup qualification.)
