Uganda, Mauritania and Sudan have withdrawn from the 1994 World Cup, FIFA announced, and soccer's governing body also indefinitely postponed Libya's matches because of a U.N. embargo. Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Sao Tome and Principe, Malawai and Gambia withdrew earlier this year, but FIFA allowed South Africa, Namibia and Benin to enter the tournament late. Thirty-two teams will compete in Africa's first round of qualifying, and nine will advance to the second round.

Togo advanced to the second round of Davis Cup competition Friday when Libya's team failed to show for the three-day African Zone competition. Libya kept its team at home "because its players didn't have updated vaccination papers," the Togolese Tennis Federation said. The federation did not specify which vaccinations the Libyans were missing. Libya notified Togo by telegram on Wednesday that its team would not play, the federation said. Togo will meet Senegal in the next round of competition.
