Nigeria’s Dream Team VI have not been seeded for the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, which will serve as qualifiers for next year’s Rio Olympics as hosts Senegal and Egypt are the seeded teams for today’s draw.
Hosts Senegal will top Group A, while Egypt will headline Group B.
This means that the other six finalists – Nigeria, Algeria, Mali, Zambia, Tunisia and South Africa – could be drawn in either group.
The top two teams from each group will qualify for the semi-finals.
The top three teams will automatically qualify for the Rio Olympics while the fourth best team will playoff for a ticket to the global competition.
The Africa U-23 Cup of Nations will be staged in November.
