2014 FIFA World Cup seeding for CAF (19 November 2010)

Next update: 17 December 2010

Assumptions:

- CAF will again have 5 spots
- CAF will keep the current qualifying system
- FIFA will use the FIFA ranking to seed the teams
- CAF will choose the July 2011 ranking for seeding

The July 2011 FIFA ranking will include matches played between July 2007 and July 2011. We already have 50% of the formula. Things can still change as there are many matches to be played involving African teams: CAN 2012 qualifiers and plenty of friendlies.
This the July 2011 ranking (for CAF only) using matches played up to and including November 18th, 2010 and matches scheduled up to July 2011 (only those on fifa.com).

The "1.0" part is computed this way: points gained / (number of matches played + scheduled).

Botswana replace Benin in the first pot.
Chad replace Guinea-Bissau in the third pot.

Best movers:

9 - Botswana
4 - Chad
3 - Burkina Faso, Senegal and Zimbabwe

Worst movers:

-3 - Madagascar
-2 - Guinea, Mali, Uganda and Ethiopia

Most points gained:

146 - Botswana
66 - Egypt
65 - Burkina Faso

Most points lost:

-8 - Libya and Swaziland
-7 - Madagascar
-6 - Kenya

  3. You wanted an answer. I can only give you one based on numbers. :)
    I guess their football is going through a tough time right now, that's why they don't win enough games.
