Nigeria will take on Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi in Group B in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in June, according to the draw held Friday in Giza, Egypt.

Under the gaze of the Sphinx and the illuminated backdrop of pyramids, the spectacular draw that followed an open-Air event produced an intriguing set of groups that leave many riddles to be answered.

Hosts Egypt, winners of the competition a record seven times, will face double champions Democratic Republic of Congo. Uganda and Zimbabwe fill the last two places in Group A.

Group F in the 24-team tournament brought together the second and third most successful sides in its history. Cameroon, who won their fifth continental crown last time and were originally set to host the competition, will face four-time winners Ghana. Benin and Guinea-Bissau complete the group.

Group D contains three former champions, with top seed Morocco matched against Ivory Coast and South Africa, as well as Namibia.
