Ethiopia to face Sudan in Nations Cup qualifiers
Ethiopia will face Senegal in the final round of qualifying for the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
The tie will see two east African teams go head-to-head, depriving one of a finals berth in South Africa. Ethiopia will play the first leg away from home giving it an edge to take advantage of the return game.
The draw, made in Johannesburg on Thursday, also saw two west African giants, Ivory Coast and Senegal, go head-to-head while champions Zambia face Uganda, and a north African derby between Libya and Algeria.
The ties will be played out over two legs between 7-9 September and 12-14 October.
Ghana's Black Stars have been drawn against Malawi, while Nigeria, who missed out on the 2012 finals, will come up against Liberia.
Seven-time African champions Egypt were absent from the draw after being eliminated by Central African Republic (CAR).
CAR, who became the 30th team to make the final round of qualifying, when they triumphed over the Pharoahs 4-3 on aggregate last Saturday, will face Burkina Faso.
