The next fixture will be played in March 2018, where the Flames will travel to Morocco for their second group game.

The Flames will finish the qualifiers with a home fixture against Morocco in November.

Below is the full fixture:

13 June 2017:                 Cameroon vs Morocco

The group winner qualifies for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, while the runner-up also qualifies if they are among the three best runners-up.

Even though Cameroon are the hosts of the final tournament and have already qualified automatically, all matches of the host team will count leading us to the three following possible scenarios:

If  Cameroon is the winner of the group, the runner-up will automatically qualify to the final tournament. No other team will be eligible to qualify from this group.

In the event that Cameroon is the runner-up, only the winner of the group will qualify to the final tournament.

And if Cameroon is either in 3rd or 4th place, the winner of the group qualifies to the final tournament and the runner-up will be eligible to qualify as one of the best runners-up.
