2022 World Cup draw: Some 'easy' groups await Africa's giants, but they must beware overconfidence

The 40 African nations still standing in the qualifying campaign for the 2022 World Cup learned the identities of their group stage opponents during a star-studded event at The Nile Ritz-Carlton in Cairo on Tuesday, but not everyone will be happy with their lot.

Teams were drawn into 10 groups of four teams, with the winners of each pool set to advance to two-legged playoffs.

Liverpool face month without Salah, Mane when AFCON returns in 2021

Steve Nicol is shocked by how the current Liverpool side's attack constantly tries to get behind their opposition.

Liverpool face the prospect of going a month without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane when the Africa Cup of Nations returns in 2021.

Nigeria could only scrape a 2-1 home win over tiny neighbours Benin while Cameroon were held to an embarrassing home draw by the Cape Verde Islands.

Africans Abroad: Salah and Mane star for Reds, Mothiba finds the net

Lebo Mothiba ended his five-and-a-half-month wait for a goal by scoring twice in Strasbourg's Ligue 1 victory over Nimes last weekend, while both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane starred as Liverpool defeated Manchester City in a potentially decisive clash at the top of the English Premier League.

South Africa's Mothiba hadn't scored since May when he took to the field at La Meinau on Saturday, enduring a goalless stint with South Africa at the Africa Cup of Nations before a sluggish start to the season...
