Egypt and the Black Stars of Ghana are among 16 of the 20 African contenders for places at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, which are involved in friendly fixtures ahead of the opening third round qualifiers next month. The others are Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Gabon, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Malawi, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Togo and Tunisia while the idle foursome comprises Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan and Zambia. FIFA Confederations Cup hosts South Africa and CAF African Nations Championship qualifiers Tanzania will also test their strength against Chile and Zimbabwe respectively.

Nigeria have included five of the Olympic squad that finished second behind Argentina in Beijing last year in an almost full strength squad, for a game against the Reggae Boyz of Jamaica in London. Among the Super Eagles strikers is uncapped prolific scorer Michael Eneramo, who is also being wooed by Tunisia, where he plays for leading club Esperance.

Nigeria and Tunisia are in the same FIFA World Cup and CAF African Nations Cup qualifying group, and appear set to battle for first place with Mozambique and Kenya considered outsiders. Other top-five nations in action are Cameroon and Ivory Coast with the Indomitable Lions facing Guinea near Paris while the Elephants included struggling Chelsea striker Didier Drogba for a match with Turkey in Izmir.
