Cameroon striker and skipper, Samuel Eto’o
It will be an action-packed 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers weekend. Some big names still have plenty of work to do, such as Cameroon who must overturn a 2-0 deficit at home to Cape Verde.
Boosting them is the return after nine months of talismanic forward Samuel Eto’o.
Nigeria will be favourites to see off Liberia after a 2-2 draw away in the first leg, but Stephen Keshi’s side are no longer the dominant force they once were and Super Eagles fans will be nervous until the game is safe.
One of Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal will be dropping out at this stage, with the Ivoriens holding a 4-2 advantage as they head to Dakar on Saturday.
Ghana will expect to see off Malawi as they lead 2-0 from the first leg and a defeat in Lilongwe would come as a major surprise.
Tunisia are locked at 2-2 with Sierra Leone with the home leg to come and should be comfortable winners, while Morocco was overturn a 2-0 deficit against Mozambique at home.
Ethiopia lost 5-3 to Sudan in their away leg but the score-line flattered the Sudanese, who received two late penalties. It will likely be a different story in Addis Ababa.
Zimbabwe hold a 3-1 advantage going into their clash with Angola in Luanda, while Guinea face the tough task of Niger in Niamey and have just a 1-0 lead to take there.
