Africa Cup of Nations champions Nigeria will face South Africa and Sudan when they bid to reach the 2015 tournament in Morocco.

Stephen Keshi's men lifted the trophy for the third time in 2013 with a 1-0 win over Burkina Faso and will meet the hosts of that tournament, South Africa, in qualifying for the 2015 competition.

The two sides are joined by Sudan in Group A, with a final place to be taken by a qualifier from the preliminary rounds in the form of Namibia, Congo, Libya or Rwanda.

Burkina Faso face matches against Angola and Gabon in Group C, and could be joined by Liberia, Lesotho, Kenya or Comoros.

Ghana - another nation heading to the World Cup - face West African rivals Togo in Group E, while Algeria, Africa's other representative in Brazil, have games against Mali and Ethiopia to look forward to in Group B.

Seven-time winners Egypt will face Tunisia and Senegal in Group G.
