African teams are good, but our major problem is finances. All the people who play in the teams are either students or employed.
If for example Kenya were to have camp in South Africa like we did in the Vodacom cup 2 years ago, about 10-15 players have to ask for leave from their employers which is kind of tricky. The students just defer their courses to the next semester whenever camp is called. Apart from that, if the game was proffesional in Africa, it would be easy for people. Right now, most teams just get allowances of about 300 USD after playing, and are not entitled to a medical cover.

From the look of things, this repechege is gonna be tough. It will be best if you know you are a repechege contender to gather as much points as possible, since the highest ranked teams get the advantage to play at home in the first round of the repechege.

Are we sure there will be home advantage at all? Considering it will take place in November I wouldn't be surprised if the repechage tournament is based on Hong Kong's Cup of Nations and played as a round robin format.

Im not sure, but that has been the norm, and from past experience, WR is extremely good at maintaining the status quo.
