Rwanda’s Amavubi will play Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea and Central African  Republic to qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon.

The draw was held in Gabon on Thursday night and Amavubi, drawn out of Pot 4, were pitted in Group H of the qualifiers.

The Amavubi team which failed to qualify for this year’s edition that starts in Gabon on Saturday will try their luck once again having qualified for the first time in 2004.

Rwanda will start her campaign for the 2019 finals in June this year when they play away to Central African  Republic between June 5-13.

The remaining match days will be staged between March, 2018 until November, 2018.

The winner of each group alongside the best three second placed teams will qualify for the tournament and hosts Cameroon will also be part of the qualifiers.

Former champions like Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia failed to qualify for this year’s competition, which kicks off on Saturday, also in Libreville.

This is the second time oil-rich Gabon are hosting the tournament after they first did so in 2012 as joint hosts with Equatorial Guinea.
