Ghana’s senior national team, the Black Stars will need to push Egypt aside for a place in the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be hosted by Russia.
The Black Stars were drawn against the north African giants as well as Congo and Uganda in Friday’s final group stage draw held in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
The stars managed to swerve the so-called the “group of death” in this campaign, but will still face a daunting task of qualifying ahead of the seven-time AFCON winners who they beat to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Group B has been touted as the group of death with the likes of Nigeria, Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia to battle for the single qualification slot.
The qualifying campaign begins in October this year, and will end November 2017, all things being equal.
Below are the groups drawn for the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers.
Libya, Guinea, DR Congo, Tunisia
Zambia, Cameroon, Nigeria, Algeria
Gabon, Morocco, Mali, Cote d’Ivoire
Burkina Faso, South Africa, Cape Verde, Senegal
Uganda, Congo, Ghana, Egypt
