    African men ready for 2012 Olympic qualifying draw
    There will be 17 men's teams in Wednesday's
    draw for the second round of African qualifying for the 2012 London Olympic games.

    The draw will held at the Confederation of African Football headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.
    The delayed second leg of the tie between Liberia and Ivory Coast is set to be played in Monrovia on 20 April, with the Ivorians leading 4-0.
    The eight eventual winners then face a final round of qualifying, the format of which is yet to be announced.
    Three African sides will qualify for next year's Olympics in London with a fourth one facing a play-off against an Asian side for another place at the games.
    The teams have been divided into two pots according to Fifa's March world rankings.
    Ivory Coast's ranking is being used rather than Liberia's for the purpose of the draw.
    The seeded teams will be in one pot and they are Ivory Coast or Liberia, Egypt, Nigeria, Tunisia, South Africa, Algeria, Gabon and Morocco.
    While Senegal, Benin, Mali, Zambia, Sudan, Congo, Tanzania and DR Congo will be in a separate pot.
    The first leg of the second round games will be played on the weekend of 3-5 June and the return matches will be played two weeks later.

    Olympics - updated draw procedure, with teams


    The draw for the 2nd main round of the men's qualifiers in the Olympic Football Tournaments, London 2012 will be held at the CAF Headquarters on Wednesday 13 April 2011, 10.00 hours. The 16th qualified team will only be known on 20 April 2011, as FIFA has postponed the return leg match between Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire for this same date in order to allow the Ivorian team to leave its territory to play this match.

    Draw procedure:
    The sixteen teams are divided into 2 pots, one containing the 8 seeded teams and the second one the next best 8 teams. The FIFA Coca Cola ranking of March 2011 has determined the seeded teams.

    Consequently, one ball from pot 1 will be drawn and placed in the central empty pot, one ball from pot 2 will then be drawn and placed in this same central pot. The two balls will be stirred again. The first ball drawn will determine which team will play its home match first (first-leg match), the second ball drawn determines the order for the return-leg match. All the balls will be of the same colour. This procedure will be repeated 7 times, until all 8 matches are known.

    The pots are confirmed as follows:

    Pot 1 (seeded teams):


    1. Winner Côte d'Ivoire/Liberia (Côte d'Ivoire, rank 2) ;
    2. Egypt (rank 3) ;
    3. Nigeria (rank 4) ;
    4. Tunisia (rank 8) ;
    5. South Africa (rank 9) ;
    6. Algeria (rank 10) ;
    7. Gabon (rank 11) ;
    8. Morocco (rank 12);

    Pot 2 (non-seeded teams):


    1. Senegal (rank 14) ;
    2. Benin (rank 17) ;
    3. Mali (rank 18) ;
    4. Zambia (rank 22) ;
    5. Sudan (rank 26) ;
    6. Congo (rank 29) ;
    7. Tanzania (rank 30) ;
    8. Congo DR (rank 32).

    As a reminder, the match dates for the 2nd round are the following: 3/4/5 June 2011 for the first-leg matches, 17/18/19 June 2011 for the return-leg matches.

    The draw results will be confirmed in written by 14 April 2011 at the latest.

    The delayed second leg of that clash is set to be played in Monrovia on 20 April, with the Ivorians leading 4-0.
    The eight eventual winners then face a final round of qualifying, the format of which is yet to be announced.
    Three African sides will qualify for next year's Olympics in London with a fourth one facing a play-off against an Asian side for another place at the games.
    The first leg of the second round games will be played on the weekend of 3-5 June and the return matches will be played two weeks later.
    Second round draw:
    Algeria v Zambia
    Morocco v DR Congo
    Congo v Ivory Coast or Liberia
