South Sudan had participated in the zonal preliminary tournament in Nairobi at the start of the year with Kenya advancing to the second round.

Zimbabwe, like South Sudan, had participated in a pre-qualifiers tournament that had Zambia and Madagascar.

Cape Verde who played Algeria in the Zone 1&2 pre-qualifiers will also have another chance at advancing to the final qualifying round while Chad will be playing for the first time.
