Total AFCON 2019: Amavubi’s opponents to be revealed on Thursday

Posted on Jan 11 2017

Rwanda will know her opponents in the qualifiers for the Total 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday night when the preliminary draw will be staged in Libreville, the capital city of Gabon.

The drawing ceremony of the Qualifiers of the 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations will take place on Thursday night at the hotel Radisson Blue at 19:30 (20:30 local time) in Libreville City.

Rwanda will be vying for a final place for Cameroon finals after missing on a slot for Gabon 2017 following a third-place finish in Group H with seven points behind Mozambique, which beat Mauritius 1-0 to also end with seven points and second spot due to head to head rule having beaten Amavubi 3-2 in the return game. Mauritius finished bottom of the table with 6 points while Ghana topped the group to qualify for the continental show piece.

The 2019 AFCON will be hosted by Cameroon, who first staged the tournament in 1972. Last year, they hosted the women’s version of the African tournament.

Chad, who pulled out of the qualifiers for the 2017 AFCON, are banned from this edition of the competition as a result.

Former champions like Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia failed to qualify for this year’s competition, which kicks off on Saturday, also in Libreville.

It will be the second time oil-rich Gabon are hosting the tournament after they first did so in 2012 as joint hosts with Equatorial Guinea.
