By Michael Abayateye

The preliminary draw for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers is scheduled for Libreville in Gabon on Thursday.

This will be done ahead of the 2017 AFCON which would start on Saturday, January 14.

The qualifiers according to Confederation of African Football(CAF), will begin on March 20 across the continent, just a month after the upcoming AFCON ends.                        

The competition will be hosted by Cameroon with the likes of South Africa, Zambia and Nigeria hoping to make amends after failing to qualify for this year’s competition.
