Kalisto Pasuwa's men were placed in Pot 4 according to the Confederation of African Football (Caf).

Zimbabwe are in the same pot with Togo, Uganda and Guinea Bissau. This means the Warriors face tough opponents such as holders Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Cameroon, Senegal, Morocco, Egypt and Algeria in the group stages.

Pot 2: Tunisia, Mali, Burkina Faso, DR Congo

Pot 3: Cameroon, Senegal, Morocco, Egypt

Pot 4: Togo, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Guinea Bissau

The hosts Gabon will avoid holders Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Algeria because they are the top seeds for the draw. Cameroon, Senegal, Morocco and Egypt will not meet in the group stages.

Teams will be drawn into four groups of four with the top two teams in each group advancing into the last quarter finals.

The pots were based on the performance of the qualified teams during the AFCON final tournaments (2012, 2013, 2015), AFCON qualifiers (2013, 2015, 2017), FIFA World Cup (2014) and FIFA World Cup qualifiers (2014).
