Heavyweights in danger of missing African Cup

Heavyweights in danger of missing African Cup

Nigeria, South Africa and Tunisia are all in danger of missing out on the 2012 African Cup of Nations heading into this weekend's final round of qualifiers.
The three former African champions face tense deciding matches in the final round of qualifiers, desperate to avoid the humiliating eliminations experienced by holder and seven-time winner Egypt and four-time champion Cameroon.
Even Ghana, the 2010 World Cup quarterfinalist, is not yet certain of making the trip to Gabon and Equatorial Guinea next year.
This weekend, lowly football nations like Guinea, Niger, Malawi, Central African Republic and Cape Verde could squeeze out more of Africa's heavyweights in the battle for the 10 remaining places at the African championship.
