Chipolopolo drawn in Group G alongside Ivory Coast 

The Chipolopolo Boys have been drawn in Group G for the 2025 AFCON qualifiers alongside Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone and Chad. 

Zambia will be looking to get back to the continental showpiece after a poor outing at the last event. 

Coach Avram Grant and his team have been handed a very fair draw and the soccer fans will be expecting the team to qualify. 

The first and runners-up in the eleven (11) groups that do not involve tournament hosts Morocco, will gain qualification to the competition.

Hence Zambia just need to finish in the top two places to qualify to the 35th edition of the biggest football event on African soil. 

For teams that finish first and second in a group consisting of Morocco, who by virtue of being tournament hosts gain automatic qualification, the highest ranked team will join Morocco.

The 2025 Africa Cup of Nations will be staged in Morocco from December 2025-January 2026.

Group A: Tunisia, Madagascar, Comoros, Gambia

Group B: Morocco, Gabon,Central Africa Republic, Lesotho 

Group C: Egypt, Cape Verde, Mauritania, Botswana
