Africa’s long journey to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is underway with a total of 28 matches scattered across the continent for the proceeding six days. All 54 FIFA-affiliated football associations from the Confederations of African Football (CAF) enter the qualification rounds, with Libya ( was threatened from exclusion from the qualifiers all together due to debts owned to former coach Javier Clemente, but with those debts are now settled and can look forward to a second round showdown against a to-be-determined nation). and Sierra Leone ( suspension were lifted back in June allowing them the chance to battle for a place in the second round).

Instead of two knockout rounds to kick-off the qualifying campaign, there will be a knockout stage before and after a group stage with 10 teams advancing to the third and final round of which the five winners will advance to the World Cup.

Nations ranked 27-54 will play home-and-away over two legs with the 14 winners advancing onto the second round.

Only 5 Will Fly Africa’s Flag In Qatar

Since 1998 in France, Africa have had at least five representatives at the world showpiece, with the exception the 2010 FIFA World Cup, hosted in South Africa, when the continent had six.

Only on three previous occasions have African teams reached the quarter-final stage at the World Cup, and never the semi-finals nor final. The last nation to reach the last eight were Ghana at the 2010 showpiece.

Cameroon have qualified for the most World Cup tournaments, seven, followed by Nigeria with six.

Only 13 African nations have qualified for the World Cup in it’s history, dating back to Egypt’s first-round exit at the 1934 event in Italy.
