Stuart Baxter's Bafana find themselves pitted against Ivory Coast, Morocco and Namibia in Group D, and will now be eagerly awaiting the start of the tournament on June 21st when the hosts, Egypt, play the opening fixture to get things underway.

Bafana have two former winners (Ivory Coast in 1992 and 2015, Morocco in 1976) that they will have to get results against if they're to progress in the competition, while neighbours, Namibia, are attending the tournament having qualified for the first time since 2008.
