The last qualifiers will be decided on these two dates;

Play-offs
Europe (1st leg tomorrow, 2nd leg Wed)
Russia-Slovenia
France-Rep of Ireland
Greece-Ukraine
Portugal-Bosnia-Herzegovina

North & South America (1st leg tomorrow, 2nd leg Wed)
Costa Rica-Uruguay

Asia & Oceania
New Zealand-Bahrain (2nd leg tomorrow, first leg finished 0-0)


Africa (matches tomorrow)
3 groups still need to be decided:
Group A- A win for Cameroon away against Morocco ensures them of the World Cup. If they fail to win, they have to hope Gabon doesn't win either away against Togo. Otherwise Gabon is through.
Group B- Same situation as group A. Tunisia is through if they beat Mozambique away. If not, Nigeria will have a chance; they'll have to win away against Kenya.
Group C- Algeria leads Egypt by 3 points and a better goal difference. The two will play in Egypt tomorrow. Egypt needs to win by 3 goals to be ensured of qualification. A win by 2 goals will mean an extra deciding match will have to be played as the 2 will have the same nr of points&GD. A win by 1 goal for Egypt will mean Algeria is through on GD.

I was talking with Tunesian freind and i was suprised about what he said :
According to what he said : if they comes to equal points with Nigeria , the goal difference that count and not head to head ! is it true?!

Cameroon also qualified after beating Morocco 0-2, goals scored by Webo and Eto'o. Tunisia lost their, seemingly easy, away match against Mozambique 1-0 while Nigeria won 2-3 against Kenya. Nigeria passes Tunisia in that group and is qualified. Funny thing is, both the winning goal of Mozambique and the winning goal of Nigeria were scored in the same minute :D
