[AFRICAN CUP OF NATIONS QUALIFYING] Egypt, winner of the last three African Cup of Nations, and 2010 World Cup finalists Algeria and Nigeria were all upset in qualifying for the 2012 African Cup of Nations to be co-hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. The other three 2010 World Cup finalists could do no better than draw on the second matchday of qualifying.

Moussa Maazou scored to give Niger a 1-0 win over Egypt, which is in last place in Group G with only one point in two games.

Goals by Eude Dagoulou and Momi Hilaire gave the Central African Republic a 2-0 win over Algeria.

Just days after FIFA reinstated Nigeria to compete in international competition, the Super Eagles traveled to Guinea, where they fell, 1-0, on Kevin Constant's early goal.

Ghana had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Sudan in Kumasi and had star Asamoah Gyan sent off 10 minutes from the end.

Cameroon played to a 1-1 tie at home with the Democratic Republic of Congo, while South Africa had to settle for a 0-0 tie at Sierra Leone.
