Sunday 17 January 2010 – 145 DAYS TO THE WORLD CUP

The final games of the second round of the group stages take place today in Group D as Gabon take on Tunisia and Cameroon play Zambia. Having beaten Cameroon in their first game Gabon actually now look good value to progress from the group first. The defeat of Cameroon was a real shock as in some quarters it was believed that the formerly great nation were revealed for the has beens some believe they are. Going up against Gabon are Tunisia who scraped to a 1-1 draw in their opening match which also was something of a surprise as instincts pointed towards being the second strongest team in the group. As a result there is now a lot to play for in both matches in this group today. Cameroon will probably get it together and defeat Zambia while Gabon and Tunisia should supply a real tustle.

Coming back to Saturday results went as expected for once in this tournament as Egypt maintained their 100% record with a 2-0 victory over Mozambique with two second half goals while Nigeria scored their first win from a Yakubu penalty to beat Benin 1-0.
