The Confederation of African Football (CAF) are in the midst of the second round of their qualifying matches. Twelve teams have already been eliminated, leaving 10 groups of four teams to battle it out to see who goes through to the third round. The winners of each group qualify for the next round.
Let's run through the potential group winners.
In my opinion, there's nothing to suggest that South Africa, Tunisia, Congo, Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria and Senegal won't win their groups. They are all well in contention to qualify and wins in their next games should see their places in the next round almost guaranteed.
A couple of the remaining groups are a little tougher to call.
Zambia and Ghana are the two main contenders in Group D, but considering they qualified for the last World Cup, you'd have to think the Ghanian side have enough about them to get through.
That leaves us with Cameroon and Togo battling it out to see who qualifies from Group I.
Both sides have experienced players to call on, but with players like Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Alex Song and Samuel Eto'o at their disposal, Cameroon should top the group.
The eagle-eyed among you will notice that Didier Drogba and the Ivory Coast weren't mentioned in that list above. That's because, at least to me, it's a certainty that they will qualify for the 2014 World Cup, regardless of who they play. The Ivorian squad is one of the strongest among the African nations and their experience will see them through.
