They have also participated in every edition since inception in 1998.

Like the Falcons, Banyana Banyana of South Africa have also graced every edition of the championship, managing runners-up finish twice.

Zambia’s she-polopolo are making a return for the second time since 2014.

Kenya were late qualifiers after Equatorial Guinea were disqualified last week for fielding an ineligible player in the final phase of the qualifiers.

The Starlets, who qualified for the last edition in 2016 in Cameroon, will begin their campaign on November 18 against Zambia in Cape Coast.

Two teams from each group will sail through to the semi-fianls.

Top three overall finishers will book a ticket to the 2019 World Cup in France.
