The Black Meteors of Ghana will face a tough challenge in the group stage as they go up against hosts Morocco, who will have the home advantage.

Congo and Guinea, who also made it to the tournament, will look to cause upsets and advance to the knockout stages.

The tournament serves as a qualifying event for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, with the top three teams from the competition booking their tickets to the prestigious event.
