Published on: 27 April 2014
The final tournament of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations Morocco 2015 will be played from 17th January through 8th February 2015.

Ghana have been handed a tricky route to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations as the Black Stars have been drawn in Group E of the qualifiers to face Guinea and neighbours Togo.

The Black Stars will also face a yet to be determined opponent, as they attempt to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.

One of Madagascar, Uganda, Mauritania or Equatorial Guinea will join the Black Stars in Group E.

Seven Group winners, seven Group runners-up and the best third-placed side will qualify for the tournament.

This means the top two teams in each group will secure automatic places at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations while the best third placed team in the entire qualifying campaign will also gain a place.

The six group games will be played between September 5 and November 19, 2014.

Ghana have always found it difficult beating Togo and Guinea and the matches will not come easy for the Black Stars as they seek to qualify for Morocco.

The draw for the final round of qualifiers for the Orange Africa Cup of Nations - Morocco 2015 was held on Sunday afternoon at the CAF headquarters in Cairo.

The Finals, in Morocco, will be played from the 17th of January to the 8th of February 2015.

    There is nothing tricky about these two opponents! The fact of the matter is that history always repeats itself esp in football and going by head to head between these two countries against, Ghana ll clinically beat these two countries home and away!! Now Ghana and Togo has met 27 times with Ghana winning 12 of the encounter with togo having only 6 wins with 9 ending in a draw!! Ghana has the most resultative wins thrashing Togo by 4 goals to nothing and 3 goals too!! Togo ll be no match for Ghana judging by the head to head!! Now with guinea, Ghana has met them 17 times with Ghana winning 8, 4 for guinea and 5 draws! Ghana has the biggest win too by thrashing guine 6-2!! Guinea ll not be a big threat either!
