1990 FIFA World Cup qualification – CAF First Round

The CAF First Round was the first stage of the qualification for the 1990 FIFA World Cup in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) zone.

FormatEdit

Eight knockout ties were originally drawn, involving the sixteen lowest ranked African countries.

Lesotho, Rwanda and Togo all withdrew after the draw was made. This meant their scheduled opponents – Zimbabwe, Zambia and Gabon – all advanced by walkover.

The winners of each tie advanced to the Second Round, where they were joined by the eight highest ranked African teams who received a bye in the first round.
