Ghana have been pitted in Group C of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifying campaign.
This was determined at a draw held in Cairo Thursday.
The Black Stars will vie for one of the two available tickets to Cameroon Afcon in a group with South Africa, Sudan and the winner of a preliminary round tie between Mauritius and Sao Tome and Principe.
The Mauritius vs Sao Tome tie would be decided in October.
Following that would be the start of the group phase – where teams play against each other in home-and-away round-robin format between November 2019 and November 2020.
Although automatic qualifiers as hosts, Cameroon will take part to gain competitive match practice, leaving Cape Verde, Mozambique and Rwanda to contest the other spot for Group F.
