The Sphinx and the pyramids of Egypt will be the centre of attraction during the Total AFCON 2019 draw. The qualified countries will know their groups on Friday night.
Former Ivorian midfielder, Yaya Touré who is also the four-time winner of the CAF African Player of the Year award, will be on stage to make the draw. Alongside him, Ahmed Hassan, record holder of the number of caps with Egypt (184), will proudly represent the host country.
Another star of North African football made the trip: Mustapha Hadji. The current Atlas Lions assistant coach, placed in hat 1, will have the difficult task of not having too much control over this draw for his team. El Hadji Diouf, two-time winner of the CAF African Player of the Year award, will also take part in the celebration, as will CAF Deputy General Secretary, Anthony Baffoe.
Other CAF legends are also in the Egyptian capital such as Joseph Antoine Bell or Rigobert Song. FIFA President Gianni Infantino will also participate in this unique event.
The African Cup of Nations will start in Egypt starting on June 21st, 2019.
