Countries scramble for 2019 Afcon qualification

2019 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers

16-18 November

Round 5  

Countries from across the African continent will continue to battle it out for a ticket to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, on matchday 5 of the qualifiers this coming weekend. 
Senegal, Madagascar, Tunisia, Egypt and Cameroon - by virtue of being hosts - have already booked their place at next year's showpiece. 
Seven countries have already suffered elimination and stand no chance of qualification, leaving 19 places up for grabs. 
With this the penultimate round of the qualifiers, most will be hoping to either book their place at next year's showpiece this weekend or take a huge leap towards doing so ahead of the last round of qualifying matches next March.

North African rivals Egypt and Tunisia kick-off an exciting round of qualifiers with top spot in Group J up for grabs. The tie comes a week following the Caf Champions League final second-leg clash between Al Ahly and Esperance de Tunis with the latter having launched a remarkable comeback to clinch the crown for a third time. 
Nigeria and South Africa will do battle on Saturday with the victor at FNB Stadium to book their ticket to Cameroon. Furthermore, Guinea will also qualify with a draw at home to 2015 Africa Cup of Nations winners Ivory Coast in Conakry. 
Furthermore, the match between Kenya and Sierra Leone has been called off due to the latter's suspension from FIFA.
