Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF)
The African confederation, will send 5 teams to the 2002 finals. Football in Africa is fervently supported by fans from the Mediterranean coasts of Tunisia to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. The game has been overshadowed by recent tragic crowd incidents, but could 2002 be the year for a first African World Cup victory?

THE CAF QUALIFYING COMPETITION
There are 52 members of the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) but 51 made themselves available for the draw - Niger did not enrol. Burundi then withdrew leaving 50 nations competing for 5 World Cup berths.

The 50 teams were drawn into five pools, A to E. There are 10 teams in each group with a seeded team playing a non-seeded team. The first round has a knock-out system with the victors advancing to the Second Round.

The 25 winners will then be drawn into five groups of five. With the league system, the top teams only will qualify for the 2002 World Cup finals.
