Ghana’s Black Satellites have been drawn to play Senegal, Mali and Burkina Faso in Group B of the 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.

The draw was held on Thursday, December 13 in Niamey, Niger.

The Satellites will open their campaign against neighbours Burkina Faso before taking on Mali and Senegal later.

Group A has hosts Niger drawn against South Africa’s Amajitas, Nigeria’s Flying Eagles and Burundi’s Little Swallows.

The tournament begins on Saturday, February 2 and ends on Sunday, February 17, 2019.

Defending champions Zambia failed to qualify for the tournament.

Ghana’s last appearance in the tournament was in 2015, when they won Bronze in Senegal.

The Satellites have, however, won the tournament three times, in 1993, 1999 and 2009, when they conquered the world too.
