With that result, the Burkina national team reached nine points, leading the group, followed by Uganda with eight points, Malawi, third with seven points, and finally South Sudan with three points.

The Burkina national team secured its qualification due to confronting Uganda and Malawi in the last round together, which makes one of them only nine points.
