A total of 47 countries began the group stages of their qualifying campaigns to join hosts Cameroon at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

Ghana heralded in a new era as coach Kwesi Appiah returned for a second spell in charge of the Black Stars who duly began their Group F campaign with a 5:0 thrashing of Ethiopia in Kumasi.

Captain Asamoah Gyan began the rout with a landmark strike in the 10th minute - his 50th goal for his country.

Just four minutes later, John Boye added a second with Ebenezer Ofori making it 3:0 to Ghana on his debut just before half-time.

After the break, a Raphael Dwamena brace made it 5:0 to the hosts who are looking for their first Nations Cup title since 1982.

Uganda's Geoffrey Sserunkuma struck late in their delayed Group L match away to Cape Verde as the Cranes - despite their travel problems - secured a big 1-nil victory away from home.

A solitary goal from Stephane Sessegnon was enough for Benin to take an early lead in Group D after their 1:0 win at home to the Gambia.

In Group H, a late goal from Salif Keita earned Central African Republic a 2:1 win over Rwanda on Sunday.

CAR took the lead in the 70th minute through Junior Gourrier, but AS Vita Club striker Earnest Sugira equalised for the visitors right at the death.

Just when the Amavubi thought they had secured a valuable point on the road, Keita struck CAR's winner in the third minute of added time to snatch all three points.
