Samuel Eto'o scored twice to take his World Cup qualifying tally to six goals and lead Cameroon to an easy 5-0 win over Mauritius on Saturday.

The victory meant Cameroon completed the first group phase of African qualifiers unbeaten, seven points clear of the Cape Verde Islands at the top of Group One, Lagos-based newspaper the Nation reported Sunday.

Barcelona striker Eto'o, who had scored four goals in as many starts, opened the scoring on 26 minutes and got his second from the penalty spot two minutes into the second half.

Substitute Albert Meyong Ze added two more and Olympique Lyon midfielder Jean Makoun was also on target.

Ghana confirmed their place in the final phase of qualification for the 2010 FIFA World Cup/Africa Cup of Nations with a 3-0 win over Lesotho in Sekondi on Saturday.

After a delayed kick-off, due to crowd trouble at the venue, Sulley Muntari put the hosts into a 19th minute lead.

Striker Junior Agogo doubled their advantage in the 24th minute, and Matthew Amoah completed the scoring in the 67th. Ghana end top of Group 5 thanks to a helping hand from second-placed Gabon, who beat Libya 1-0 to see all three sides end on 12 points.

Germany-based striker Boubacar Sanogo scored twice to ensure an easy 3-0 win for Cote d'Ivoire over Madagascar and a place in the final phase of the African qualifiers for the World Cup finals.
