Zambia face a potentially slippery draw for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

The Chipolopolo, who failed to go past the group stage of the 2013 tournament, will face Tunisia, Cape Verde and Congo DR in Group B.

Elsewhere, Algeria, the top-ranked side on the continent, face a testing draw for the Africa Cup of Nations finals. The Desert Foxes, who reached the second round of this year’s World Cup, will face Senegal, Ghana and South Africa in Group C.

Hosts Equatorial Guinea will play neighbours Gabon, Congo and Burkina Faso in Group A while Group D features Ivory Coast, Guinea, Cameroon and Mali.

Zambia, who are the seeded side in Group B, lifted the trophy in 2012 in the Gabonese capital Libreville but only after playing all their matches before the final in Equatorial Guinea.

Tunisia were also at the 2012 finals but played their games in neighbouring Gabon while DR Congo and Cape Verde did not qualify.

Groups:

Group A: Equatorial Guinea, Congo, Gabon, Burkina Faso

Group B: Zambia, DR Congo, Cape Verde, Tunisia

Group C: Ghana, Senegal, South Africa, Algeria

Group D: Ivory Coast, Guinea, Cameroon, Mali
