One unanswered question for each of Africa's World Cup qualifiers

We now know the identity of Africa's five teams in Russia, but what do they need to improve between now and next summer?

Nigeria: Who plays in goal?

Despite their fine qualifying campaign, the Super Eagles have concerns in various positions across their team.

Abdullahi Shehu's continued improvement has done enough to end the concerns that he may not be up to the job, although the identity of the team's central striker isn't yet determined.

Nigeria have no shortage of options, but Kelechi Iheanacho's...

Where was African World Cup qualification won and lost?

Africa's World Cup qualifying campaign is almost over, with only two more matches to play and all five of the continent's representatives in Russia already decided.

Over the last year, we've been treated to a fascinating tangle between Africa's top sides, with Nigeria, Senegal and Egypt securing their spots in Russia with a game to spare, and Morocco and Tunisia booking their tickets in their final fixtures.

Gab Marcotti explains why he believes that Egypt have the potential to surprise many people after they and Nigeria qualified for the World Cup.

Egypt coach Hector Cuper defended his tactics on Monday, saying a different strategy may not have led the Pharaohs to what will be their first World Cup in 28 years.

Egypt gathered in Cairo for the first time since Oct. 8, when they qualified for the World Cup with a game to spare after beating Republic of Congo 2-1 to top Africa Group E. They kick off that last qualifier against Ghana on Sunday.

Yet, despite the long-awaited qualification, Cuper has been widely criticised in Egypt for his cautious...

Liverpool's Mohammed Salah to skip Egypt's final World Cup qualifier

Mohamed Salah of Egypt
Mohammed Salah has already helped Egypt qualify for the World Cup.

Mohammed Salah will miss Egypt's final World Cup qualifier against Ghana this month to focus on Liverpool's domestic and European campaigns, the Egyptian football federation said on Thursday.

Egypt has already qualified for the World Cup in Russia, finishing at the top of Group E ahead of Uganda, Ghana and Republic of Congo.

Egypt coach Hector Cuper instead called up Mahmoud Abdel-Razeq, better known by his nickname Sheekabala, in Salah's place. It is the first call up for the enigmatic striker...
