The second round of African World Cup Qualifying has come to an end and the 10 group winners have progressed to the playoffs. These hotly-contested fixtures will see five home-and-away ties, with only the winners advancing to the World Cup proper in Brazil next summer.

The CAF qualifying programme has not been without drama or controversy thus far.

A number of the continent’s "bigger" sides have fallen by the wayside, while more still have been penalised for breaking rules.

Expect to see high-octane action and pure footballing theatre as these 10 teams collide in October and November.

Read on as we run-down the remaining 10 sides and evaluate their chances of progression.
