AFCON 2019: Ghana get all West African group

AFCON 2019

Ghana have been drawn in Group F for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt alongside defending champions Cameroon.

The Black Stars will be up for revenge against the Indomitable Lions, who ended their hopes of winning the 2017 tournament in the semi-finals.

Guinea-Bissau and Benin are the other teams, making it an all West African group.

Ghana qualified as group winners from Group F, with three wins from their four matches.

The first game of the tournament will be at the Cairo International Stadium between Egypt and Zimbabwe on Friday, 21 June.

The tournament takes place in six stadiums across Egypt between 21 June and 19 July.

This year’s tournament is the largest Africa Cup of Nations ever, with 24 teams.

The top two from each group will go through to the last 16, while the best four third-placed teams also progress – meaning only eight teams are eliminated in the group stages.

The draw was held next to the pyramids in Egypt.
