Group F – Algeria

Algeria is already confirmed to be the winner of Group F, as they won all their games. Furthermore, they are the only team to achieve this.

Group G – Mali

Group H – Zambia

Even though Zambia is currently the first-placed team in Group H, the hosting nation, Ivory Coast has a solid chance to win the group at home.

Group J – Equatorial Guinea

The Guinean side has nearly secured first place, after beating Tunisia 1-0. Nevertheless, they could still finish second, if they don’t get three points from Libya.

Group K – Morocco
