CAF World Cup qualifying: Algeria, Cameroon, Nigeria all drawn together

Nigeria celebrate
Nigeria face a stiff test to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Three of the five African teams at the 2014 World Cup have been drawn in the same group to qualify for the 2018 edition.

Only one of Algeria, Cameroon and Nigeria will play at the next tournament in Russia after the Confederation of African Football made the draw for five qualifying groups on Friday.

The three traditional powers were grouped with Zambia.

Just the group winners in all of five four-team pools will advance to the 32-team tournament in Russia.

Algerian club Setif thrown out of African Champions League

CAIRO -- Algerian club Entente Setif were thrown out of the African Champions League on Friday for fan trouble that caused a game to be called off and left spectators and security officials injured.

The Confederation of African Football disqualified the two-time African champion following the problems near the end of last weekend's game against Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa.

With Sundowns leading 2-0 in injury time, fans invaded the field and threw bottles, stones and firecrackers, injuring police...

VICTORIA, Seychelles -- Algeria qualified for next year's African Nations Cup with a 2-0 win in Seychelles on Thursday, joining fellow North Africans Morocco and host Gabon at the finals.

Yassine Benzia scored just before half-time and Hillel Soudani netted in the second half for a fairly easy win for Algeria in their first game since the surprise resignation of coach Christian Gourcuff in April. Algeria now have an unassailable lead in Group J.

Morocco were the first team to qualify in March. The...

Who will be South Africa, Algeria and Nigeria's over-age Olympic players?

Itumeleng Khune
Goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune appears set to be one of South Africa's three over-age players.

A newspaper leak in South Africa revealed a rather embarrassing list of pedantic possibilities for South Africa's Olympic team, as they consider which over-age players to pick to strengthen the side for the men's football tournament in Rio.

Coach Owen da Gama's list looked more like a collection of personal favourites and brought howls of derision, followed by a rapid but unconvincing denial as spin doctors at the South African Football Association "slipped" an alternative list to the media.

Olympic men's football draw made in Rio ahead of 2016 games in Brazil

Mexico's Olympic gold could be a steppingstone prior to success in Brazil.
Mexico take gold in London four years ago.

Defending Olympic champions Mexico have been drawn against Germany, Fiji and South Korea in the Group C of the men's football tournament this summer.

Mexico, who beat Brazil 2-1 in the 2012 final at Wembley Stadium in London to win their first-ever football gold at the Olympics, won the CONCACAF Men's Olympic Qualifying Championship to reach Rio -- along with fellow finalists Honduras.

The draw was made on Thursday at the Maracana stadium in Rio, which hosted the final of the World Cup two years...
