Following Eritrea’s withdrawal, group E of the CAF qualifiers will be contested by the five remaining teams: Morocco, Zambia, Congo, Tanzania and Niger.

All of Eritrea’s matches have been cancelled, while the rest of the match schedule for Group E remains unchanged.

Zambia is top of Group E after the 2012 AFCON winners beat Congo Brazzaville by 4 goals to 2 yesterday at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
