2017. They include Algeria, Egypt, Ghana and Gabon. One of these nations would
be replacing Libya who has pulled out of hosting the finals as a result of
civil turbulence.

Thursday that the host of the 2017 African Cup of nations will be announced on
April 8 in Cairo, Egypt.

considered as friendlies and not count for points.

divided into 13 groups, with the winners advancing to the finals as well as the
two best runners-up.
