Ghana's new Black Stars boss, Avram Grant, who officially took over today is going to face a difficult start on the job as Ghana has been drawn alongside Africa’s highest ranked team Algeria, high-flying South Africa and Senegal in Group C of next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
The draws held in Malabo also saw hosts Equatorial Guinea paired with neighbors Gabon (they co-hosted the tournament together in 2012). Star studded Ivory Coast and Cameroon meet in Group D, which will also be a reunion considering the two met in the qualifiers with Cameroon winning at home 4-1 and then it was a 0-0 draw in Abidjan in the return fixture.
The tournament kicks off on the 17th of January with the final to be played on February 18th.
Group A: Equatorial Guinea, Congo, Gabon, Burkina Faso
Group B: Zambia, DR Congo, Cape Verde, Tunisia
Group C: Ghana, Senegal, South Africa, Algeria
Group D: Ivory Coast, Guinea, Cameroon, Mali
