The last of the African teams leave the World Cup

Mozambique had joined FIFA in the 1980. They played in the preliminary round away to Zaire and were drubbed 5-2 away before losing at home to the same opposition with a more respectful margin of 2-1. They faced exile from the elite competition for the next two qualifying campaigns of the elite competition. They returned to the African qualifiers in 1994 but gained only a home draw before being knocked out of the competition. The Mambas had a heart aching moment when their dream of playing the finals ended against Sudan on away goal rule. They had another sad result against Guinea for the last campaign. The football result of this team is awaited by its fans and their live football scores are even more interesting for people around the globe.

The progress of Mambas has been regarded by FIFA as the best mover in the Coca Cola world rankings in 2007 but Dutch coach Mart Nooij will face real test as they are paired in one of the toughest groups where they face the likes of Tunisia and Nigeria. The Mambas have not done themselves any favour during this campaign as well. They have secured just one point in two matches. A dull goalless draw against Nigeria was followed by the hammering at the hands of table toppers Tunisia. The major problem the mambas face is the goal drought. They have not scored a single goal in the current qualifier campaign. The likes of Miro, Genito and Danito will have to step and score if Mozambique is to make any fight in the group.

Nigeria has a rich tradition of qualifier campaigns behind them. They joined FIFA in 1960 and since then they have played in every qualifying campaigns. They were among the 24 African teams that participated in the 1974 FIFA World cup qualifying rounds campaign. They had a dream start when they defeated Sudan on aggregate goal’s margin of 2-1 before eliminating Mauritius in the second round. The round saw their dreams of making the finals being shattered. They have only once, during France 1998 campaign, have come into the reckoning to make it through to the finals of the elite competition. They were one game away to achieve their goal. But the upper Eagles dashed their hopes with a 3-0 victory. In their last campaign for the biggest completion in international football they ended up in the bottom of the table six defeats and only ten points.

Kenya has failed to make it through to the finals of the CAF African Cup of Nations in the past two editions and therefore they would be targeting this campaign to make an impact on the world stage.Kenya will look upon Dennis Oliech to be at his best if Kenya is to make any kind of impact in the qualifiers. They have another classy player in Mohammad Jamal and Francis Ouma who can lift their team and can score goals and provide good support to Dennis Oliech.

Nevertheless both the teams find themselves in desperate situation and their home and away games can kick spark their campaign and lead them back in contention for qualification.
