Preliminary pairs connected

The hunt for one of the 23 desired places at Africa Cup of nations that will be held at Morocco in 2025 practically has began on 20 February when the preliminary draw was performed at the Egyptian capital of Cairo.
Out of the total 52 members that this confederation has, first on scene are going to run the 8 lowest teams from the world rankings (which was taken from 15 February). After the layout the first 4 pairs were formed:

Somalia - Eswatini.

Sao Tome e Principe - South Sudan.

Chad - Mauritius.

Djibouti - Liberia.

The above pairs would meet each other twice from 20 to 26 March (in home and away games). Over 180 minutes (or more) they will be halved to 4, and these would join the 44 main teams that are already in the qualifying group phase.
Draw for this major elimination phase will be announced at a later date. For now is only known that the 12 groups are going to begin on 02 September and last until 19 November and during this time 6 rounds will be played.
