All is set and done for the 3rd edition of the 2019 U23 Africa Nations Cup to take place in Egypt, after the draws were done recently at Haramlek Palace in Alexandria, Egypt.

Cameroon is housed in a group of high quality which means Cameroon will actually have to put up a fight in the group stages especially with the host country. The Indomitable Lions feature in GROUP A with Egypt, Mali and Ghana.

Group B consists of Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, South Africa and Zambia.

The competition kicks off on November 8th. The opening match will pit Egypt against Mali at the Cairo International Stadium.

The top three teams from the AFCON will qualify for the Summer Olympics which will take place in Tokyo in 2020.
