The Confederation of African Football (CAF), will draw lots on Thursday, to determine a quarter-finals opposition for Ghana.

The process is to determine who advance to the last eight from Group D after Mali and Guinea tied identical records.

According to a communiqué from the continental governing body, “In pursuant to Article 74 of the regulations of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, a random draw will be conducted to determine the second place team in Group B, between Mali and Guinea.”

It said “The draw will take place during the meeting of the Organising Committee of the Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday, 29 January 2015 at 16H00 local time at the Hilton Malabo.

“There will be two balls with position two (2) and position three (3), and the representative of the two teams will pick a ball from the pot. The one who picks position two (2) qualifies for the quarterfinal.”

The winner will join Ivory Coast for the last eight with Ghana scheduled to meet the former.
