The Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers are hitting fever pitch, with the usual suspects already for the Cameroon event scheduled for next year, 2019.

After the weekend fixtures, a number of spots are still up for grabs for next year's showpiece in Cameroon, which has been moved from the usual January/February to June/July for the first time.

Madagascar became the first side to book their spot at the tournament for the first time in their nation's history, with Senegal, Tunisia and Egypt also clinching qualification on the same matchday back in October.

Ivory Coast and Guinea qualified on Sunday after the two teams drew 1-1, whiel Riyadh Mahrez inspired Algeria to a 4-1 win against Togo. 

Kenya and Ghana remain in pole position to qualify, with Ghana beating Ethiopia 2-0 on Saturday. Kenya's match against Sierra Leon failed to take place, owing to a FIFA ban on Leon. 

Here are the teams that have qualified so far.
