Hosts and three-time champions South Africa are one of six teams on bye in the last eight and will face Botswana in their quarterfinal match.

Other team’s on bye are Malawi, Mozambique and Ghana who will also be taking part in the tournament for the first time as guest side.

The Black Stars are one of two guest side’s in this year’s Cosafa Cup together with Tanzania.

Ghana face winner from Group B that comprises Lesotho, Swaziland, Madagascar and Tanzania.

Ghana have agreed to take part after Angola decided not to take part in this years edition.

The final quarterfinal draw will see Mozambique play Malawi.
