Kickoff for AFCON 2019 qualifiers, Zambia crash out of U-20 WC [Football Planet]

Football Planet

On this week’s Football Planet, the qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will kick start this weekend with 48 teams participating.

Group winners and best three runners-up qualify for the tournament with hosts Cameroon competing in Group B.

If Cameroon tops the group, the runners-up will qualify; if they finish runners-up, the winners will qualify; if they finish third or fourth, the winners will qualify and the runners-up will compete for one of the three additional places.

Also, Zambia’s hopes of becoming only the second African nation to win the Under-20 World Cup are over after a 3-2 defeat to Italy on Monday.
