Angolan Supporters Angolan football supporters and the Palancas Negras (The Black Antelopes) have succeeded in the placing the name of Angola on the football map since 1982. Since their apperance in the World Cup (Germany 2006) Angola is gradually emerging as a promising side.
Nigerian Football Team Football fans will not forget nostalic memories of Nigeria's glorious days when the Eagles boasted of the mesmorising talent of Austin Jayjay Okocha and the defence barrier provided by Sunday Oliseh Rashidi Yekini as the scoring machine upfront.
Egyptian Football Team The pharaoh of Egypt, the African cup holder are the most successful team (6 titles) that the continental competition has ever recorded. Regrettably Pharaohs' failed to qualify for South Africa 2010. This lack of form questione their readiness.
Ghanian Fans Ghanaian football fans are the fact that Black stars have given a good account of themselves in matches. Stars have been enjoying massive support from fans. By all account, the soccer fever sweeping the nation surpasses even the heydays of Ghanaian football.
Cameroun Football Team Cameroun emerges as a football force in Africa and has been able to set a number of records at the World Cup. The Indomitable Lions particpated in the World Cup 5 times (1982, 1990, 1994, 1998 and 2002); and first African team to reach the quarter finals.

Honduras has not been a well known name in the World cup because it appeared in only once in 1982 in Spain and was eliminated at group stage.

The team obtained their ticket to South Africa by piping through Costa Rica to a third place with a good away win over CONCACAF rivals El Salvador. Few could argue with the outcome after the Hondurans crushed Costa Rica 4-0 in August.

COACH: Reinaldo Rueda. The Colombian took Los Catrachos to their second World Cup finals thanks to his ability to create a solid team unit with players of undoubted individual talent. He made his mark as Colombia under-20 coach, leading the team to third place in the FIFA World Youth Championship in 2003. Had two years in charge of Colombia but was unable to get them to the 2006 World Cup.

KEY PLAYERS:

David Suazo (Inter Milan): Aged 30 and plays at the forward. Despite limited chances at Inter, after impressing with Cagliari, Suazo continues to sparkle for Honduras with his raw pace, physical presence and exceptional finishing. Will be keen to show the world his skills in South Africa.

Wilson Palacios (Tottenham Hotspur): Aged 25 and plays at the midfield. If there is a single player who has helped transform Honduras from nearly-men to World Cup qualifiers it is Palacios with his powerful style and intelligent organisation in the centre of midfield. With so many attacking players around him, Palacios has brought English-style steel to the team.

Prospects;

Honduras with FIFA world ranking 38th as of Nov 2009, like their fellow CONCACAF qualifiers, will need all their elements to come together perfectly but for Rueda's team anything beyond the group stage will be considered a success.
