2013 African Cup of Nations qualifiers: Seeding for the final round draw (24 February 2012)

The first round is scheduled for 29 February and 15 June. Egypt vs. Central African Republic will be played on 15 and 24 June.

According to El Watan, the CAF Ranking will be used to seed the teams. What does "CAF Ranking" mean? Is it something like the one used for the final tournament draw? Then we're looking at this ranking. However, seeing CAF's sudden interest about the FIFA Ranking procedure, maybe they will use the July 2012 FIFA ranking to seed the teams for the second round draw.

Here's the July 2012 FIFA ranking - with remaining matches counted as defeats:
