Rabat was the location on Friday as Confederation of African Football (CAF) carried out the draw for the 2023 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations that will start on June 24. The competition will be hosted by Morocco and serves as Africa’s qualification competition to determine which teams represent the continent at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. Cameroon national team legend and scorer of four goals during the country’s Bronze Medal finish at the 2000 Olympics, Patrick Mboma, was on hand along with former Morocco national team star Aziz Bouderbala to draw the teams. Group A features hosts Morocco along with Ghana, Republic of Congo and Guinea while Group B will see Egypt, Mali, Gabon and Niger battle for a spot in the semifinals.
