All continents have World Cup qualifying except Africa during this international break. Africa has 2013 Cup of Nations first legs of the final round. Highlighted by Cote d'Ivoire vs. Senegal. Central African Republic have a very decent chance at qualifying for first time ever. They knocked Egypt out in prior round and face off against Burkina Faso. It would be a stunning achievement for them because they were a dreadful side until qualifying for 2012 Nations Cup. They have made huge progress in last three years.
Wales would have been right in there under the old management team but under Coleman they will go back to being shit. Serbia aren't as good as Croatia IMO and Croatia should finish in the top 2. Scotland are just shite and will finish 5th.

Bosnia have been a little unlucky so yeah they'd be good qualifiers. Think they were a win away from qualifying for 2010 and 2012 but didn't get it and ended up losing to Portugal in both playoff rounds. The ref giving Nasri a pen when it was outside the area didn't help, mind.
