The ten African teams who qualified for the last round of the Africa qualifiers for the Brazil 2014 FIFA world cup have being drawn against each other
Africa Champions, Nigeria will slug it out against the Waya Antelopes of Ethiopia. The two sides have met three times in the last three years, the last being in the group stage of the South Africa 2013 Africa cup of nations early in the year with the super eagles winning the Ethiopians 2-0
Ivory Coast will host Senegal. It will be recalled that the two sides met in the qualifiers for the 2013 AFCON and the Teranga lions of Senegal were disqualified for crowd trouble
