CAF moves 2016 CHAN draw to November 15
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have brought forward the draw for next year’s CHAN in Rwanda to November 15. CAF announced yesterday that the draw in Kigali will now be staged three days earlier than the originally slated.
All 16 finalists are now known after Cameroun outscored Congo on aggregate on Saturday.
The other qualifiers for the 2016 CHAN are hosts Rwanda, Angola, DR Congo, Gabon, Ethiopia, Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Both defending champions Libya and last year’s runners-up Ghana failed to qualify for the 2016 CHAN.
The tournament, reserved for players featuring in their home leagues, will be played from January 16 to February 7 in three Rwandan cities of Kigali, Gisenyi and Butare.
