Côte d'Ivoire, Nigeria and Cameroon qualify to 2014 World Cup

Côte d'Ivoire, Nigeria and Cameroon qualify to 2014 World Cup

Three national teams from Africa have qualified for 2014 World Cup and two more teams are to join them on Tuesday.

Didier Drogba scored for Côte d’Ivoire from the spot against Senegal as the Elephants secured their third straight World Cup. An own goal and a strike from Salomon Kalou was just enough to kill off the match. Papiss Cisse injury time goal was not more than consolation and Senegal lose 2-4 on aggregate and fail to qualify for the final tournament since their epic performance in 2002 when they managed to reach quarter-finals after beating France and Sweden.

Nigeria were too strong for Ethiopia and beat them twice to secure a 4-1 aggregate victory. Victor Moses and Victor Obinna scored in the return leg to send Stephen Keshi’s side to Brazil.

Cameroon left no chance for Tunisia as Pierre Webo, Benjamin Moukandjo and Jean Makoun twice downed the opponents and make it to the World Cup.

Two other African teams will pass qualification to Brazil come Tuesday night as Algeria take on Burkina Faso and Egypt host Ghana.
