African qualifying - final stage draw

October 22, 2008

The draw for the third round of qualifying in the African Zone for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was made on Wednesday and Cameroon were perhaps the unluckiest of the seeded teams, having been drawn against Togo, Morocco and Gabon in Group A.

Their coach, the German Otto Pfister said: "It is indeed a very difficult group. We are the favourites on the paper, but this doesnt mean too much. As a matter of fact, we cannot afford to underestimate any team in our group, they are all strong."

The five group winners qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
