Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Ghana face nervous
finishes to African Cup of Nations qualifying this
week, and the embarrassment of possibly sitting
out the continental championship only months
after playing at the World Cup.
The three are not yet certain of a place at next
year s tournament with one round of games to go.
The last six of 16 spots in January and February
in Equatorial Guinea will be decided in the last-
round scramble on Wednesday, when Republic of
Congo, Congo, Uganda and Malawi could be sur-
Defending champion Nigeria s situation was dire
after it failed to win any of its first three qualifiers
and responded by firing 2013 African Cup-winning
coach Stephen Keshi.
But with Keshi re-instated after his temporary
replacement insisted he was still the best man for
the job, Nigeria won 2-0 in Republic of Congo this
weekend to climb into the qualifying places. That
means Nigeria will scrape through if it beats already-
qualified South Africa at home on Wednesday.
However, anything less could see Republic of Congo
Ivory Coast also lifted itself back into contention
with a 5-1 rout of Sierra Leone. But it also faces
an already-qualified opponent in Cameroon, which
beat the Ivorians 4-1 in September. A draw in Abid-
jan will seal Ivory Coast s place in Equatorial Guinea
ahead of Congo.
Ghana tops its group, but a surprise 1-0 loss in
Uganda while captain Asamoah Gyan was
missing with injury means there s still
work to do for the former World Cup
quarterfinalists at home against Togo.
Guinea s commanding 4-1 victory in Togo
in the penultimate round means any two
of the four teams can still qualify auto-
matically as top two finishers in the group.
As one of the West African countries
badly affected by the Ebola outbreak and
with more than 1,000 deaths, Guinea s
qualification would also bring further com-
plications to a tournament that days ago
had a late change of host because of the
Equatorial Guinea will now stage the
January 17-February 8 tournament after
Morocco was dumped for expressing fears
over Ebola and asking for a postpone-
One of the biggest surprises to make it
to Equatorial Guinea would be Malawi,
which will book its place if its result at
Ethiopia is better than Mali s at home
against Algeria. Mali will be made more
nervous by the fact that the Algerians have
won five from five in qualifying in an
impressive start under new coach Christian
Gourcuff and appear to be early favorites
to win the overall title next year.
Having missed out on the two automatic
places from Group G, record seven-time
African champion Egypt can only hope
to qualify as the one best third-place team
from the seven groups. Egypt probably
needs to win at North African rival Tunisia
to have a chance of that or it will likely
miss out on a third straight African Cup
after winning the last time it played in
Algeria, Cape Verde, Tunisia, South
Africa, Zambia, Cameroon, Burkina Faso,
Gabon and Senegal have already qualified
alongside Equatorial Guinea, the new
stand-in host. (AP)
CAIRO---Egypt is among four candidates to host
the 2017 African Cup of Nations, a test for the coun-
try to show it is getting over years of violent civil
unrest that also contributed to a sudden dip for its
once-dominant soccer team.
The Confederation of African Football announced
Sunday that Egypt made the shortlist alongside Alge-
ria, Gabon and Ghana to take over the hosting from
Libya, which withdrew because of security and organ-
Bids from Kenya, Sudan and Zimbabwe were ruled
out because they did not comply with "set criteria,"
CAF will decide on the new host next year, it said,
although it didn t give an exact date.
Both the next two editions of the African Cup of
Nations will have replacement hosts at short notice
after Morocco was replaced last week by Equatorial
Guinea for the 2015 tournament---which starts in
Egypt has much to do to prove it s a safe venue
for 2017 after years of political uncertainty and violence
following the overthrow of longtime president Hosni
Mubarak in 2011. Egyptian sport has struggled during
the period of unrest and the Egypt team, which won
a third straight African title and record-extending
seventh overall in 2010, hasn t even qualified since.
In some of the worst violence, more than 70 people
were killed at a riot at an Egyptian league game in
early 2012, prompting the country to temporarily
avoid hosting games.
CAF, which is based in Egypt, released no details
on any of the four candidates bids, but CAF president
Issa Hayatou said after a meeting with Egyptian offi-
cials this month that he considered the North African
country a safe venue.
Egypt is a three-time host and last held the cham-
pionship in 2006.
Algeria is Africa s top-ranked team, but it hasn t
hosted the 16-team African Cup since 1990. It is in
the process of building new stadiums for 2017.
Gabon and Ghana are more recent hosts: Gabon
co-hosted with Equatorial Guinea in 2012 and Ghana
was the host in 2008. (AP)
