Ghana will battle Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and Kenya in group F for a place in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon.
The qualifiers will start in June 2017 and end in November next year.
Unlike the qualifying tournament of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, all matches of the host team will count leading us to the 3 following scenarios.
If the host team is the winner of the group, the runner-up will automatically qualify to the final tournament. No other team will be eligible to qualify from this group.
If the host team is the runner-up, only the winner of the group will qualify to the final tournament.
If the host team is either in 3rd or 4th place, the winner of the group qualifies to the final tournament and the runner-up will be eligible to qualify as one of the best runners-up.
The groups are twelve, so the winners will automatically qualify while the the three or four best runners up will join them for the AFCON depending on whether the hosts qualifies or not.
