Qualification for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations gets underway this month with hosts Ivory Coast clashing with Zambia on Friday night at 8pm (UK time).
Group H pits Ivory Coast along with Zambia, Comoros and Lesotho, with Les Elephants already through to the continental showpiece as the host nation. Recently-appointed Jean-Louis Gasset, though, will want to use these qualifiers as an opportunity to test out his squad and generate some momentum heading into next year’s tournament. Zambia haven’t qualified since 2015 so will want to make a strong start here.
