MOST COMMENTED

The draw for the final round of African World Cup qualifying Wednesday has pitted Cameroon in the same group as Morocco, and Nigeria in the same group as Tunisia. In the other three groups, the favorites to advance are Egypt, Ghana and Ivory Coast.

"It is indeed a very difficult group," said Cameroon's German coach Otto Pfister. "We are the favorites on paper, but this doesn't mean too much. As a matter of fact, we cannot afford to underestimate any team in our group, they are all strong." Togo, which qualified for the last World Cup, is also in Cameroon's group, along with Gabon.

There are five groups of four teams each. The top team from each group qualifies directly for South Africa 2010. Each country plays the other teams in its group twice, home and away.

Group A: Togo, Cameroon, Morocco, Gabon
Group B: Mozambique, Nigeria, Kenya, Tunisia
Group C: Rwanda, Algeria, Egypt, Zambia
Group D: Ghana, Benin, Sudan, Mali
Group E: Ivory Coast, Malawi, Burkina Faso, Guinea
