In Day 3 of the first group stage of the African qualifying, African Nations Cup champion Egypt and 2006 World Cup finalists Ghana and Angola both lost.

Cameroon and Ivory Coast, two other World Cup finalists, had to settle for ties against inferior opposition.

China's bid to qualify for the 2010 World Cup ended prematurely when it was eliminated from contention after losing to Iraq, 2-1, on Saturday in Tianjin.
