Egypt head seeds for African final-phase draw

JOHANNESBURG, Oct 14 (Reuters) - African champions Egypt, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Nigeria have been named as the top seeds for next week's draw for the final phase of African qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup finals, FIFA announced.

They will each head one of the five groups into which the last 20 qualifiers looking to reach the 2010 finals in South Africa will be placed at the draw in Zurich on Oct. 22.

The seeds have been determined by the latest FIFA rankings, which means 2006 World Cup finalists Togo are on the bottom tier of the seedings, with Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda and Sudan.

The 20 qualifiers for the last phase of the African zone preliminaries were determined at the weekend after the conclusion of the second round. The last phase is expected to start next year, although FIFA have not released any dates.

The winners of the five groups will qualify for the finals and the top three in each group go through to the 2010 African Nations Cup finals, to be played in Angola six months before the World Cup.

Seedings:

Pot 1: Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Nigeria

Pot 2: Algeria, Guinea, Mali, Morocco, Tunisia

Pot 3: Benin, Burkina Faso, Gabon, Kenya, Zambia

Pot 4: Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sudan, Togo
