Ghana will face Egypt in the pick of the play-offs in Africa to decide which countries qualify for next year's World Cup.

Egypt were the only non-seeded team to reach the play-offs with a 100 per cent record and they were the side that the highly-fancied west African giants wanted to avoid.

Africa champions Nigeria will face Ethiopia - the lowest ranked side in the draw - whilst the top seeds Ivory Coast tackle Senegal.

In the other two-legged ties, Tunisia meet Cameroon and African Cup of Nations finalists Burkina Faso are up against Algeria.

The first legs will be played between October 11-15 and the second legs a month later.

Draw:

Ivory Coast v Senegal

Ethiopia v Nigeria

Tunisia v Cameroon

Ghana v Egypt

Burkina Faso v Algeria
