Ghana, Algeria, and African champions Cameroon face a crucial week of 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

 

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos admits their campaign is doomed if they do not take at least four points off Nigeria in back-to-back clashes.

 

Algeria, who have qualified for the last two World Cups, are in Lusaka to face Zambia on Saturday.

 

Ghana, who are seeking a fourth consecutive World Cup appearance, will host Congo Brazzaville in Kumasi on Friday. They would be needing maximum points to have any realistic hope of overtaking Group E leaders Egypt.
