Zambia - Seychelles 1-1 (first leg 4-0, aggregate 5-1)

Lesotho-Botswana 0-0 (1-4 on aggregate)
Liberia 3-0 Gambia (3-2 on aggregate)
Mozambique 3-4 Guinea (3-5 on aggregate)
Eritrea 0-0 Sudan (0-3 on aggregate)
Angola 2-0 Chad (3-3 on aggregate, but Angola wins 1-0 on the away goals rule)
Benin 3-2 Madagascar aet (4-3 on aggregate)
A couple of notes...I knew that goal that Angola got in their 3-1 loss would come back to haunt Chad, though I think the better team went through...and I'm really confused about the Benin-Madagascar result...shouldn't Madagascar have won 2-1 on away goals? Why did it go to extra time if they drew 2-2 and Benin was only able to draw 1-1 in Madagascar? Something is definitely up, I guess we'll have to see...
Are the winners advancing to the group stage or are there more playoffs left?
Yes, the winners from this round move onto the group stage where there will be 5 groups of 6 teams in each.
There was no extra time in the match. The 3-2 was scored in stoppage time (See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/africa/3275529.stm).
Togo-Equatorial Guinee 2-0 (2-1 on aggregate)
Sierra Leone-Congo 1-1 (1-2 on aggregate)
Cape Verde-Swaziland 3-0 (4-1 on aggregate)
Somalia-Ghana 0-5 (match was played in Ghana, 2nd leg will also be played in Ghana on Wednesday)
Yes but it says one thing in one paragragh and then something else in the next lol. I'm not saying your wrong cause your probably right but bbc has to deferenciate the phrase "extra time" from "stoppage time." Read it again you'll know what I'm talking about.
Libya - Sao Tomé e Principe 8-0 (9-0 on aggregate)
Check out the BBC "Clockwatch" page: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/africa/3274965.stm
It refers to the Uganda-Mauritius match as concluding full-time, and going into extra time, and also refers to a golden goal in the Benin-Madagascar match..
"1319 GMT: The final whistle goes in Curepipe it ends 3-0 to Mauritius over Uganda making it 3-3 on aggregate, its now extra time."
"1703 GMT: GOLDEN GOAL! Benin beat Madagascar 3-2 on the day thanks to a hat-trick from Omar Tchomogo including two penalties, the aggregate score is 4-3 to Benin."
I'm as comfused at this as you are, since Angola and Chad were drawn 3-3 on aggregate as well, but did not go to extra time, with Angola advancing on away goals. Would be interresting to find an explination of this.
Angola v Chad
Angola lost 1 -3 in Chad and won 2 - 0 at home. An away goal counts as double. Therefore Angola wins. .
Uganda versus Maurituis on the other hand was different because it finished 3 - 0 to the hosts in both cases after 90 min.
Hope that helps
And you're qualified to make this statement how? Not every lack of esteemed respect towards Africa stems from racism. And yes, I have lived there, in Capetown...
