  1. Côte d'Ivoire are almost certain to be seeded if they qualify to the Africa Cup of Nations next year.

    1. Senegal was a tough draw, but good pointswise for Cote d'Ivoire. But they would have to win both games. If they finally win the African Cup of Nations I'm pretty certain they'll be right up there, given their competition will be the only one counting 100% (that and the Confed Cup). That said CONMEBOL and UEFA qualyfing campaigns could change a lot.
