Cape Town - Ivory Coast, Ghana, Egypt and Cameroon had few problems in progressing to the final round of World Cup qualifying in Africa on Tuesday.

African champion Ivory Coast beat Liberia 3-0 at home in Abidjan for a 4-0 aggregate victory. Striker Giovanni Sio scored twice in the Ivorians' comfortable second-leg win.

Ghana beat Comoros 2-0 to head through to the final group stage which will decide the five African teams at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Egypt powered to a 4-0 win over Chad in Alexandria, overturning a 1-0 loss in the first leg in Chad.

Cameroon, under new interim coach Alexandre Belinga, was happy to settle for a 0-0 home draw against Niger. That allowed the Cameroonians to qualify for the next round after winning the first leg 3-0.
