The African Cup of Nations, GABON2017 group stage draw was done yesterday by CAF.
The tournament will be played between January 14 and February 5 in Libreville, Franceville, Oyem and Port Gentil; Gabon.
The tournament was under threat some months ago, following political unrest about presidential elections which was won narrowly by incumbent Ali Bongo. The situation however has since calmed.
AfricanFooty gives you the FIRST ROUND draw in full.
