Nigeria, whose best outing was a third-place finish in 2014, will be making their third appearance at the tournament

Libya, the 2014 champions, make a return to feature for a third time at the competition

Rwanda, on their part, are expected to provide the Super Eagles with a stern test.

Equatorial Guinea are tipped to be the underdogs in the group due to their inexperience at international level.
