World Cup 2006 qualification: Africa – Cameroon face elimination from…
Squarefootball – Dec 28, 2004
There is still everything to play for in all five groups, with the gulf in class between the traditional powerhouses and the rest narrowing all the time. Indeed, Nigeria, Cameroon and current African Nations champions Tunisia are all in serious danger of missing out on the finals, with underdogs Togo, Libya and Guinea among those threatening to upset the status quo on the continent. This really is the ?Group of Death?, with Cameroon, Egypt and Ivory Coast being three of the strongest teams on the continent. Cameroon are bidding for their fifth consecutive appearance in the finals, but their chances of doing so already look to be hanging by a thread… Poor organisation off the pitch (as ever) has certainly been a factor, while the likes of Samuel Eto?o have failed to produce the goods on the field of play. They will expect to win their next three games, but then face crunch ties away to Ivory Coast and at home to Egypt. Ivory Coast look well positioned to not only reach Germany, but to establish themselves as the new power in African football. A strong squad looks particularly good up front, with Didier Drogba, Aruna Dindane and Bonaventure Kalou providing arguably the most potent strike-force on the continent. Libya are exceeding all expectations, having won their last three games to move into second spot in the group. They play their three main rivals in quick succession in 2005 and results in those games will probably see them fall away a little. Egypt have under-performed badly and with away games to Ivory Coast and Cameroon still to come, their hopes of qualification look slender.

Lehmann has been dropped by manager Arsene Wenger in favour of Manuel Almunia and speculation is mounting the Germany international could be set for a return to the Bundesliga in a bid to keep alive his hopes of playing in the 2006 World Cup his country is hosting – even if that would almost certainly mean a cut in wages. And with Monchengladbach’s new coach Dick Advocaat, formerly of Rangers, looking to build a squad the club are confident the offer of regular first team football will be too attractive for Lehmann to pass up. “Normally, such a transfer would be difficult to achieve, but if Jens sits on the bench for much longer, then who knows what happens?” said Borussia’s director of football Christian Hochstatter. “When somebody like Lehmann becomes available then you’ve certainly got to consider it… Lehmann has been dropped by manager Arsene Wenger in favour of Manuel Almunia and speculation is mounting the Germany international could be set for a return to the Bundesliga in a bid to keep alive his hopes of playing in the 2006 World Cup his country is hosting – even if that would almost certainly mean a cut in wages.
