Official: CAF Reveal 2019 AFCON Drawing Pots
Apr.11, 2019 - 09:00 pm

By David Kappel


CAF have finally revealed the official drawing pots for the draw of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, with Bafana Bafana being placed in pot three, which means they could receive a potential Group of Death.

The draw for the tournament in Egypt will take place in Cairo on Friday night and CAF confirmed the drawing pots one day ahead of the spectacle.

“The CAF Executive Committee at its meeting on Thursday, 11 April 2019, in Cairo, Egypt approved the draw procedure for the final tournament of the Total Africa Cup of Nations Egypt 2019,” reads an official statement on CAF’s website.

“The procedure was proposed by the Organising Committee for the Africa Cup of Nations at its meeting 24-hours earlier.

“The pots and seedings of the 24 qualified teams were decided based on the latest FIFA World rankings (released 4 April 2019), which is globally accepted and portrays a true reflection of the state of the qualified teams.”

South Africa, who sit in 73rd position overall in the latest FIFA ranking and in 13th on the continent, were placed in drawing pot three alongside Uganda, Benin, Mauritania, Madagascar and Kenya, which means Stuart Baxter’s men cannot face these five sides.
Here are the four drawing pots, as confirmed by CAF:

Pot 1: Egypt (hosts) – Cameroon – Nigeria – Senegal – Tunisia – Morocco

Pot 2: DR Congo – Ghana – Mali – Ivory Coast – Guinea – Algeria

Pot 3: South Africa – Uganda – Benin – Mauritania – Madagascar – Kenya

Pot 4: Zimbabwe – Namibia – Guinea Bissau – Angola – Tanzania – Burundi


The draw will take place in Cairo on Friday night at 20:00 SA time and Soccer Laduma will keep you up to date about Bafana’s group.

Six groups with four teams, one from each drawing pot, will be drawn, which means South Africa could face a potential Group of Death alongside Egypt, Ivory Coast and Zimbabwe

Last time we met our noisy( albeit for good reasons) neighbors from the West in a major competition was way back in 2010(i will never forget that lone goal from Asamoah Gyan :twisted:), now it's looking likely we will be meeting Ghana again since teams seeded into pot 2 will surely meet the ones in Pot 1...a Ghana vs Nigeria group final group stage qualification will be a major nail biter, this time the new generation from both teams will meet... Ndidi vs Partey, Iwobi vs Astu, Ekuban/Jordan/Warris vs Omeruo, Ekong, Ajayi, Balogun. Onyekuru/Osimhen, Samuel Kalu/Onuachu vs their defense...summer can't come fast enough.

They initially released the pots based on a combination of FIFA rankings and previous ANC results and we were in pot 2 based on that

Now they are going strictly by FIFA rankings.

Has FIFA forced their hand on CAF, because UEFA does not use FIFA rankings for their pots for UEFA competitions.

It's the Amaju Pinnick effect!

Nigeria has more say so now and pulls more weight in the corridors of African football.

how do you feel saying this? is it good for Nigerian or African football that ranking is based on which football country is connected to which CAF executive? I don't believe Nigeria did not get seeded without merit but you should be ashamed of yourself for waving this as if it were a victory flag

What on earth are you going on about? Isn't the FIFA rankings a globally accepted football metric?
Pinnick was able to successfully argue for the FIFA rankings to be used and won.
What's wrong in celebrating that?

You should endeavor to understand what is being said and why it's being said before going off half cocked. I personally prefer to have the weight of performances in previous African Cups factored in to underscore the importance of our own competitions, and therefore was quite fine with Nigeria being in pot 2. So this has nothing to do with your imaginary victory flag.

Rather, I'm simply doffing my hat to the hard work that our Federation president has done to finally giving Nigeria a voice at the table where these decisions are taken after so many years when we did not have a say in these matters.
