The African champion will face, World champion, Germany in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup to be held in Russia.

They will also face Chile and Australia in the more difficult group of the Confederations Cup draw.

FIFA had seeded the European trio of Portugal, Germany and Russia plus, South American champions, Chile for the draw.

Group A consists of host Russia, Portugal, Mexico and New Zealand. Russia will face New Zealand in the opening match, on June 17th, 2017.

The country to represent Africa will be determined during the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations that is to take place in Gabon, from January 14th.

FIFA Confederations Cup is a precursor tournament for the World Cup. It features the FIFA World Cup winner, hosts and champions of the six confederations.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
