The draw for FIFA's World Cup in Qatar was held on Friday at the Doha Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Five African teams have gained places in groups A, D, F, G and H. 

The opening match is scheduled for November 21st.

The host nation, Qatar, will face Ecuador to kick off the tournament in Group A that also includes Senegal and the Netherlands.

The African champions will also have to face the hosts, Qatar, and Ecuador for a place in round 2. 

In Group D, Tunisia will be playing against defending champions, France and Denmark plus an unknown opponent that could be Peru, Australia or the UAE.
