    African champions Egypt will be satisfied with their draw

    The draw for the final round of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations has taken place in Zurich, with Egypt being handed what many would consider to be the best of the five group draws.

    The African champions will face Algeria, Zambia and Rwanda in Group C as they attempt to reach their third World Cup finals.

    Cameroon, the highest ranked African country, were drawn against Morocco, Gabon and Togo.

    Ghana will face Benin, who have cruised through the qualifiers to date, as well as Mali and Sudan.

    Nigeria will face Tunisia, Kenya, and Mozambique, while 2006 World Cup finalists Ivory Coast will meet Guinea, Burkina Faso and Malawi.

    The 20 African nations remaining were drawn into five groups of four teams each.

    The five group winners qualify directly for the 2010 World Cup finals, while the first three in each group will go to Angola to contest the Africa Cup of Nations in the same year.

    Hosts South Africa qualify for the World Cup automatically, but were knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations at the first group stage of qualifying.

    The final round of qualifying matches will begin in March 2009.

    The full draw is as follows:

    Group A:

    Cameroon

    Morocco

    Gabon

    Togo
