They will then be joined by South Africa as host country.    The Final Round will be played in September and October 2012.   The draw is: Preliminary Round 1: Seychelles v Swaziland (Win 1/2) Sao Tome v Lesotho (Win 3/4) Preliminary Round 2 Ethiopia v Benin Rwanda v Nigeria Congo v Uganda Burundi v Zimbabwe Algeria v Gambia Kenya v Togo Win 3/ 4 v Sierra Leone Guinea Bissau v Cameroon Chad v Malawi Win 1/2 v RD Congo Tanzania v Mozambique Central Africa v Egypt Madagascar v Cape Verde Liberia v Namibia   The matches will be played in the first half of 2012 and with the exact dates to be communicated later.

Where is South Africa in the list of countries that must qualify? Woops somebody tells me that they will qualify simply by virtue of providing stadiums and hotels to those who qualified. I hope they read the rules properly. The qualification is only for 2013. For God's sake why can't Bafana X2 repeat that dance after their qualification. I liked it. That was really pathetic. Running around the stadium celebrating with Itu Khune infront as though they had qualified. I hope in 2013 they read rules, in particular rule number one. How on earth can a team fail to read the first rule (14.1) of the tournament? The first rule is simple and it states: READ THE RULES. The most important rule is READ THE RULES. I hope they understand this time. Read the rules. Read the rules. Read, read, read and read.

@ okocha wannabe, tell your super chickens to do the same ... read the rules ... you talk as if you qualified when you also bit the dust too. Didn't you think you qualified after your last game only to eat humble pie as well? And then blame everything on the coach when the truth really is that you are ALL talk with NOTHING to show for it.

@Mnyango, the reason we have 2012 and then 2013 AFCON is because CAF has decide to change it to the odd years, so after 2013 its gonna be 2015, 2017 etc!!
