Zambia face 2019 AFCON qualifier opponents Namibia at CHAN

Zambia face 2019 AFCON qualifier opponents Namibia at CHAN

The Super Eagles will face Rwanda, Libya and Equatorial Guinea in Group C of the competition following the draw ceremony which took place in Rabat, Morocco on Friday.

CHAN 2018 will run from January 13 to February 2018.

Casablanca, Agadir, Marrakech and Tangier will stage matches.

Equatorial Guinea qualified for the finals following the withdrawal of Gabon, and a miffed CAF hierarchy has made it clear the Gabonese (as well as Djibouti that also withdrew after playing the first leg against Ethiopia) would not be part of the qualifying campaign for the 2020 finals.

Hosts Morocco are in Group A with Mauritania, Guinea and Sudan.


Ivory Coast, Zambia, Uganda and Namibia are in Group B while Group D has Angola, Cameroon, Congo and Burkina Faso.

The local Elephants will play in group B with Zambia, Uganda and Namibia, who will discover the competition for the first time. "We have drawn with strong and experienced like Nigeria and Libya but we are upbeat for the games and we will give our best to get out of group".

Rwanda, on their part, are expected to provide the Super Eagles with a stern test as both countries meet for the first time in the group stage of a continental tournament at senior global level.

Nigeria, whose best outing was a third-place finish in 2014, will be making their third appearance at the tournament and should be fired up to make amends for a disappointing outing past year.

Equatorial Guinea are tipped to be the underdogs in the group due to their inexperience at worldwide level.
