“After two rounds of Africa’s World Cup qualifying matches not many experts would have guessed that the continent’s two most successful sides would be propping up their groups. Egypt have won a record six African Nations Cups while Cameroon have been the continent’s top side four times and are chasing a sixth World Cup finals appearance. Yet 2004 and 2006 African champions Egypt are yet to win in Group C and Cameroon are yet to score a single goal in Group A.”
