African World Cup Qualification

Qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russia gets underway in 2015 in Africa, with the Confederation of African Football splitting their teams into ten groups of four teams. Before that, the 52 nations competing were seedend and the top 28 ranked teams automatically qualified for the group stages. The remaining teams played-off to take their place in the groups as the bottom seeds.

Asia | Concacaf | South America | Oceania | Europe

Only the winner of the Groups will qualify for the third round, which is five play-offs, with the winner over two legs (home and away) progressing to the finals in Russia.
