A more likely World Cup qualifier from Africa, Gabon are an improving nation who have shown plenty of promise in recent years.
The star of their side is St Etienne forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, while Daniel Cousin is another recognisable name who has played in England's Premier League as well as for Scottish giants Rangers..
But they feature a crop of youngsters, who shone in the African Olympic qualifiers which Gabon surprisingly won, such as André Biyogo Poko and Alexander N’Doumbou, plying their trade in Ligue 1 for Bordeaux and Marseille respectively.
There is often an African nation who surprises more illustrious names at a World Cup, and Gabon, if they get there, could be that side in 2014.
