Nigeria in the group of death; Senegal handed easy draw. Full details of AFCON draw

The 2022 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) slated to hold from January 9 to February 6 in Egypt has been officially scheduled.

The draw which took place in Youande, Cameron, yesterday saw an array of personalities including Chelsea Icon Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto'o.

The headline draw captured current holders Algeria drawn against former champions Ivory Coast while runners up Senegal was handed a somewhat easy tie in a group involving Zimbabwe, Guinea and Malawi.

Three time winners Nigeria was included in what was arguably the group of death in Group D with ties against Mohamed Salah's Egypt, Sudan and Guinea Bissau. Below is the full list of the group stage draw.

Arsenal's pair meanwhile, Partey and Aubameyang face off in group C involving Ziyech's Morocco, Ghana, dubutants Comoros and Gabon.

It can be recalled that Cameron was the official host of the AFCON but due to late response, was shifted to Egypt who has done really well in responding in short notice.

Perhaps, it may be a potential signal that the Pharaohs, led by Liverpool's talisman, Mohamed Salah, will be going all out for Africa's prestigious football accolade.

Who do you think will win the AFCON?
