Senegal, who meet Congo on Friday, were the first nation to qualify for the tournament back in November after registering four wins from their opening four group stage matches, scoring nine goals and conceding just once along the way.

Since then, 18 other nations have followed suit, including South Africa's Group C rivals Ghana and Sudan, the latter of whom secured their passage to next year's AFCON after beating Bafana Bafana 2-0 on Sunday.

Elsewhere, it has been a fairytale campaign for Comoros and Gambia who have both qualified for Africa's showpiece tournament for the first time. The former qualified from Group G ahead of Togo and Kenya, while the latter saw off competition from DR Congo and Angola.

Perennial title contenders Egypt have also secured their spot in Cameroon, alongside Tunisia, Mali, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Gabon, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Equatorial Guinea and reigning champions Algeria.
