Final CAF draw on Nov 18

The Confederation of African Football earlier this week officially opened media accreditation for the draw of the final tournament of Orange African Nations Championship, slated for Rwanda next year.

The final draw for the qualified teams will be held on Wednesday, November 18 in Kigali, Rwanda,” said the CAF Media Department in a statement on Monday.

“Media interested in attending the Final Draw can apply for accreditation through the CAF Media Channel via Approval to access the CAF Media Channel does not mean you have been granted accreditation.”

All applications were subject to confirmation, which would not be on a first-come, first-served basis and successful applicants would be notified and provided with further information in due course.

Zimbabwe – one of the semi-finalists of the last edition held in South Africa last year, are most likely to make the finals, after they dispatched Lesotho 3-1 in the first leg of their qualifier at Barbourfields Stadium last weekend.

The Warriors would have to be at their worst to throw away that healthy lead when they visit the minnows in their own backyard in Maseru in the second leg.

Coach Kalisto Pasuwa seems to know that complacency could prove fatal and has admitted that playing away from home would bring its own challenge.

“I didn’t want them to get the away goal, but they did, so we have to work hard in the return leg to ensure we get a positive result. Playing away is difficult and we have to be on the  guard,” he said.
The Warriors will be aiming for their third straight CHAN finals appearance and expectations will be high this time round, they go one better and reach or even win the finals.
