Nigeria, Ethiopia through to play-offs

Nigeria progressed to the African play-offs for next summer's World Cup finals on the back of a 2-0 win over Malawi.

Needing to avoid defeat to move into the final stage of qualifying, the Super Eagles made no mistake as Emmanuel Emenike beat the offside trap to open the scoring in first-half injury-time before Victor Moses' placed penalty six minutes after the restart sealed the win.

Minyahil Teshome completed his journey from villain to hero after firing Ethiopia into the play-offs for next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.

The 27-year-old struck a 61st-minute winner as Ethiopia came from a goal down against Central African Republic to win 2-1 and secure their place in Africa's 10-team play-off round.

Teshome had been the player at the heart of the controversy that had threatened Ethiopia's progress, after they were docked points for fielding the midfielder when he should have been suspended in June's qualifier against Botswana.

Ethiopia had already celebrated their progress once, and could for a second time as they secured the three points they needed to hold off South Africa, who coasted past Botswana 4-1.

The Bafana Bafana's result was deemed meaningless as Salahdin Ahmed (48) and Teshome (61) struck after Salif Keita had given the hosts a 23rd-minute lead.

Bernard Parker (84, 89) scored twice for South Africa after Kermit Erasmus (28) and Dean Furman (45) had fired the 2010 World Cup hosts into a 2-0 half-time lead. Jerome Ramatlhakwana scored Botswana's only goal 17 minutes from the end.

While Ethiopia survived a FIFA Disciplinary Committee decision, Cape Verde Islands benefitted from one to book their passage.

Tunisia thought they had booked their place in June, only for FIFA to overturn Cape Verde Islands' 4-3 defeat to Equatorial Guinea due to an ineligible player to a 3-0 win.

That meant Tunisia had to avoid defeat at home to Cape Verde, but the visitors produced a 2-0 shock in Rades to move above the north Africans. Platini opened the scoring on 28 minutes with Nhuck adding a second three minutes before half-time.

Sierra Leone ended their campaign with a 3-2 home win over Equatorial Guinea.

Senegal seal their place in Group J with a 1-0 win over 10-man Uganda. Godfrey Walusimbi saw red on 36 minutes and Senegal eventually made their extra-man advantage tell through Sadio Mane six minutes from the end. The other game in the group saw Angola beat Liberia 4-1.

Burkina Faso jumped above Congo in Group E following a 1-0 win against Gabon in Ouagadougou. Prejuce Nakoulma scored the goal to send Burkina Faso through on 54 minutes after Congo could only draw 2-2 away to Niger.

Congo twice battled back from behind, Fabrice Nguessi (66) and Ulrich Kapolongo (76) cancelling out goals from Mahamane Cisse (34) and Daouda Kamilou (7), but the winner the visitors needed never arrived.

Ivory Coast had already won Group C, and finished their campaign with a 1-1 home draw against Morocco. Youssef El Arabi put the visitors in front but an 83rd minute Didier Drogba penalty earned a point. In the same group, Gambia beat Tanzania 2-0 through two goals from Mustapha Jarju.

Ghana, Algeria, Egypt and Ivory Coast had already secured their place in the next stage.

Cameroon and Libya will meet in Yaounde on Sunday to confirm the final qualification place in the play-off round. Cameroon need only avoid defeat to progress.
