4 December 2014

Yannick Bolasie's Democratic Republic of Congo have avoided some of Africa's biggest names in the draw for the group stage of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Eagles winger will come up against Tunisa, Zambia and Cape Verde in the finals which will take place from 17th January to 8th February.

On the second day of the competition the Leopards get their campaign underway against 2012 winners Zambia before facing Cape Verde four days later.

Their toughest test comes in the form of Tunisia who they take on four days after that, with the top two sides in the group qualifying for the quarter-finals.

The draw has pulled together a group of death in Group C where Adlene Guedioura's Algeria will face Ghana, Senegal and South Africa in a pool that boasts six tournament wins between the four teams.

Full draw:

Group A: Equatorial Guinea, Congo-Brazzaville, Gabon, Burkina Faso.

Group B: Zambia, DR Congo, Cape Verde, Tunisia.

Group C: Ghana, Senegal, South Africa, Algeria.

Group D: Ivory Coast, Guinea, Cameroon, Mali.
