There are 17 teams in the draw for the second round of Olympic qualifiers

Sudan's reward for knocking Ghana out of the qualifiers for the 2012 Olympic men's football tournament is a second round tie with Egypt.

Tanzania, who beat Cameroon in the last round, will face 1996 gold medallists Nigeria.

The eventual winners of the tie between Liberia and Ivory Coast are up against Congo Brazzaville.

The delayed second leg of that clash is set to be played in Monrovia on 20 April, with the Ivorians leading 4-0.

The eight eventual winners then face a final round of qualifying, the format of which is yet to be announced.

Three African sides will qualify for next year's Olympics in London with a fourth one facing a play-off against an Asian side for another place at the games.

The first leg of the second round games will be played on the weekend of 3-5 June and the return matches will be played two weeks later.

Second round draw:

Algeria v Zambia

Morocco v DR Congo

Congo v Ivory Coast or Liberia

Gabon v Mali

Sudan v Egypt

Benin v South Africa

Tunisia v Senegal

Tanzania v Nigeria
