You have to overcome three stages to get the desired ticket in the world championship. In the first of them come 26 selections in the game. In the african continent are taken all the time, three years before the competition kicked off the qualifying for the World cup. In October 2015, the arrival of the first duels. The 26 nations are paired in matches back and forth, for a total of 13 meetings. The winners advance to the next round. Here we can find the joint most corners of Africa, those places with little tradition of football. Those sites that only remember to do or read an article as well. The games that we like, go.
Are the selections worst classified in the ranking FIFA. This is where come into play our friends from Sao Tome and Principe. The santotomenses fell to Ethiopia. Despite winning the first leg by 1-0, in the return took a 3-1 in against.
An unfair system?
The 13 teams that have passed the first phase will bind to the 27 remaining, the favorite. The formula is the same: 20 encounters back and forth. All of them were measured in November of 2015. The inequality between a few selections, and other is terrible, but to the great it costs a countless winning their matches as a visitor. Morocco lost in Equatorial Guinea, Senegal tied in Madagascar, Ghana could not overcome in Comoros or Egypt lost in Chad. In their home tend to settle the tie, but it is not uncommon to take a shock. The lawn will not be in the best conditions, but with such only see the crowded stands, as it deserves to see these duels. In Antananarivo suffered Kalidou Koulibaly, Idrissa Gueye, Cheikhou Kouyate, Mame Diouf or Sadio Mane to achieve a draw.
Finally, the last 20 teams will play the pass to the World cup 2018 in Russia. How do they do it? Easy. In five groups of four teams. The system already are not direct confrontations, now happens to be a league. Only the five winners of their respective groups will go to the World. These meetings have begun to play now, in the month of October. That can only go a very limited number of countries makes the competition is atrocious. In the group B we can find to Nigeria, Algeria, Cameroon or Zambia. An outrage. In each of the groups there is a minimum of two selections is powerful, this makes the differences between one and the other is very small. Do you remember those 26 teams that entered the first phase? None of them has reached the final. The combined African of the last World were: Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana and Algeria. Only the Green Eagles and Algeria got past the group stage. The Ghoulam, Feghouli, and Slimani was put against the ropes to the champion.
