Hosts Sudan will be appearing in their first African Nations Championship and will be hoping to use home-ground advantage to their benefit.
They have been pooled with Gabon, Uganda and Algeria, and will expect to top their Group A having assembled an experienced squad of players, mostly selected from top sides Al-Hilal and Al-Merreikh, both of whom have had decent success in continental competition in recent years.
The side is coached by Mohamed Abdalla Ahmed, who is in his second spell with the national team.
Sudan are not a regular feature of CAF national team competitions. They qualified for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, but before that there previous appearance was in the 1976 Nations Cup.
