JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Egypt and Ethiopia went through to the final World Cup playoffs on Sunday and Libya is almost there, creating a group of unlikely contenders for Africas five places at the world showpiece. Egypt and Libya have defied major political unrest to challenge for a spot in Brazil next year. Ethiopia followed on from its first appearance at the African Cup in 30 years by reaching the decisive World Cup playoff games as one of 10 group winners, eliminating 2010 host South Africa on the way. Libya and Ethiopia have never been to the World Cup, while Egypt hasnt qualified for more than 20 years. Tunisia and Algeria also made the playoffs, with North African football fighting back after one of its worst periods culminated with the region having no teams in the last eight of this years African Cup. The continents top-ranked team, Ivory Coast, was among the first five countries into the playoff ties in October and November. The remaining five will be decided in the final group games in early September. A founding member of the African Cup of Nations -- and African champion back in 1962 -- Ethiopia reached a long-awaited high with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over South Africa in front of 25,000 roaring fans in Addis Ababa. Bernard Parkers 70th minute own goal for the South Africans sealed Ethiopias place as Group A winner, sending the supporters inside the National Stadium wild. Thousands who didnt get tickets crowded outside the walls of the stadium in the capital within minutes of full time, waving flags, bouncing up and down, and hailing Ethiopias resurgence. "There are many talented players here in Ethiopia. This will be a turning point for Ethiopian football," coach Sewnet Bishaw said, adding "our crowd" made the victory possible. Parker misdirected a header from a set-piece and it rocketed into the top right corner of his own net for Ethiopias winner. Playing for its survival, South Africa had led through Parkers left-footed volley in the 33rd minute, but Getaneh Kebede equalized in the 42nd in a game fizzing with passion from the home fans. Ranked 106th by FIFA, Ethiopia is now a two-legged tie away from being among the top 32 teams in the world in Brazil. Ivory Coast earlier won 4-2 in Tanzania after being 1-0 and 2-1 down, helped by a double from Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure. Five goals came in the first half before Africas top team prevailed and took the playoff place as Group C winner. Egypt, under former U.S. coach Bob Bradley, is also headed for the playoffs and has a chance at a first World Cup appearance since 1990 after winning 1-0 in Mozambique to dominate Group G with a perfect five wins from five so far. Mohamed Salah scored the 40th-minute winner in Maputo, adding to the hat trick he scored in Egypts win over Zimbabwe in the last round. A place at Brazil 2014 would be a remarkable turnaround for Bradleys team after it failed to qualify for the 2012 and 2013 African Cups amid violence and disorder back home. Tunisia secured a 1-1 draw and a point in Equatorial Guinea with Oussama Darragis second-half penalty to win Group B. Algeria won 1-0 in Rwanda and claimed Group H when Mali drew 2-2 with Benin in the weekends last game. A 2010 World Cup quarterfinalist, Ghana won 2-0 in Lesotho after goals by Christian Atsu and Asamoah Gyan to go top of Group D by a point from former African champion Zambia. That will go down to a tense decider when Ghana hosts Zambia in the final round of group games. Cameroon could only draw 0-0 in Congo, leaving Libya two points clear in Group I and needing a draw in Cameroon when they meet in the groups final round to be in the last 10. Best placed to take the remaining three spots in the playoffs are African champion Nigeria, Senegal and surprise package Republic of Congo. Senegal beat Liberia 2-0 after a double from Papiss Cisse to lead Uganda by a point in Group J following five of six games. Cheap Wild Jerseys .

Cheap Wild Jerseys China . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. DETROIT -- On the way to winning their sixth straight game, the Detroit Tigers found an extra team-bonding moment.The Tigers held an 8-0 lead going into the bottom of the seventh, but sensed that the Houston Astros were upset that both Jose Altuve and George Springer had been hit by pitches.So, when the Astros Scott Feldman hit Cameron Maybin to start the seventh, the Tigers were ready to get revenge in their own way. First, Maybin stole second -- something he would normally never do with an eight-run lead.I believe in playing the game the right way, so I took second to let them know that I knew what was going, he said. After that, I left it up to the big fella, because I knew he had my back.Miguel Cabrera hit Feldmans next pitch into the Astros bullpen for his second homer of the game. That made it a ten-run game, and the Tigers went on to an 11-0 win Sunday.I didnt need to say anything to Feldman -- that was just baseball, said Cabrera, who celebrated a bit more than expected, given the score. Thats how you play the game.The Tigers, who began the day one game behind Boston for the second American League wild-card spot, have now won six straight -- including a sweep at Fenway Park. The win extended Detroits lead over Houston to 1 1/2 games.It is easy to be confident when you have won six in a row, but weve always felt like this team was going to be in the race, said Justin Upton, who also homered for Detroit. This is a really good team, and were getting hot at the same time were getting healthy.Detroit outscored Houston 28-8 in the series.This wasnt our day, it wasnt our weekend and it wasnt our series, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. We need to pack our stuff and get out of here.James McCanns first career grand slam capped Detroits six-run first inning.Mike Pelfrey (4-9) got the win, pitching five shutout innings and allowing four hits and a walk while striking out four. He has now allowed fewer than two runs in five of his last eight starts.Pelfrey, though, was forced out by tightness in his back, and was having an MRI after the game.Dallas Keuchel (6-11) took the loss, allowing seven runs and seven hits in five innings, walking three and striking out four.Two days after scoring nine runs in the first two innings off Collin McHugh, the Tigers were all over Keuchel. Seven of the first eight batteers reached base, capped off by McCanns grand slam to make it 6-0.dddddddddddd Only Maybin getting thrown out on the bases kept the defending Cy Young winner from giving up more runs in the inning.A couple tough-luck plays kind of extended that inning, and then I elevated a pitch to McCann, Keuchel said. That was the difference maker.The Astros loaded the bases in the third, but Pelfrey got out of the jam by retiring Carlos Correa on a broken-bat grounder to third. Houston had them loaded again in the seventh, but Bruce Rondon struck out Correa.Cabrera made it 7-0 with a fifth-inning homer off Keuchel, and Mike Aviles added an eighth run in the next inning. He doubled off Scott Feldman and scored on Jose Iglesiass one-out sacrifice fly.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: 1B Marwin Gonzalez (hand) and OF Carlos Gomez (hamstring) were both out of the starting lineup, leaving OF Jake Marisnick as the only healthy position player on Houstons bench. Gonzalez, who got hurt Friday night, is scheduled to see a hand specialist on Monday.Tigers: OF J.D. Martinez (elbow) went 2 for 5 for Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, and is now hitting .350 after four games of a rehab assignment. He still hasnt played the field, but the Tigers are hoping to have him back by weeks end.OLD FRIENDSMcCanns first-inning homer was the first grand slam of his career and the 15th home run. Not only did the grand slam come against Keuchel -- his college teammate at Arkansas -- he has also homered twice against Drew Smyly, who also played with them with the Razorbacks.FIRST HITHouston rookie Alex Bregman got his first career hit in the third inning, ending an 0-for-18 start. Cabrera called for the ball and ceremoniously presented it to Bregman, who tossed it to the Astros dugout.UP NEXTAstros: Return home for the first of four games with Toronto. The Astros may have to start rookie Joe Musgrove, because scheduled starter Doug Fister is with his wife, who is about to give birth to the couples first child. The Blue Jays havent announced their rotation for the series.Tigers: Off Monday before hosting the White Sox for three games. Anibal Sanchez (5-11, 6.56) is scheduled to start the opener against James Shields (5-12, 4.68).
