The Confederation of African Football was allocated five qualifying berths for the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

51 teams entered the qualification process, however Burundi withdrew before the draw was made. In addition, Niger and Comoros did not participate in the qualification process. Guinea was excluded from the competition during the Final Round for government interference with its national association.

Africa's five automatic qualifying berths were taken by Cameroon, Senegal, Tunisia, South Africa, and Nigeria.
