The Afcon was originally due to be held this year—two years after the 2019 event in Egypt—but was pushed back until early 2022 in light of the corinavirus pandemic.
It will now take place in Cameroon in January and February next year, 2022.
Ahead of the draw, the 24 qualifiers have been placed in four pots of six teams each, with the pots numbered one to four. The pots have been decided based on the August 2021 Fifa world rankings.
Samuel Eto’o, Didier Drogba, Rabah Madjer, Asamaoh Gyan and Gaelle Enganamouit were some of the stars at the event.
