World Cup Africa Qualifying Draw

The draw ceremony for all relevant regions begins at 3pm GMT on Sunday, November 25, 2008.

The preliminary round initially was to feature the ten lowest-ranked nations but São Tomé & Príncipe and the Central African Republic both withdrew meaning Swaziland and Seychelles received a bye.

It means there were three matches remaining, of which Somalia-Djibouti was played as a one-off match while Madagascar-Comoros and Sierra Leone-Guinea-Bissau were two legged.

Swaziland, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Madagascar and Djibouti qualified for the first group stage in which 48 nations will be drawn into 12 groups of four. The 12 group winners and eight best runners-up will go through to the next stage.

DRAW DETAILS:
• The 48 teams will be allocated to 4 pots of 12 teams based on the FIFA World Ranking of July 2007.
• The top 12 teams will be placed in Pot A; the next 12 best teams will be placed in Pot B; and so on.
• The teams will be drawn into 12 groups of 4 teams.
• The draw starts with Pot D and ends with Pot A.
• The teams in Pod D are placed in position 4 of each group; the teams in Pot C in position 3; the teams from Pot B in position 2; and the teams from Pot A in position 1.
