CAF Olympic draw - why such haste?

CAF used the March ranking to seed the teams, although they scheduled the draw on April 13, when FIFA published the April ranking.

Pot 1: Côte d’Ivoire/Liberia, Egypt, Nigeria, Tunisia, South Africa, Algeria, Gabon, Morocco
Pot 2: Senegal, Benin, Mali, Zambia, Sudan, Congo, Tanzania, Congo DR
Result of the draw:

Algeria v Zambia
Morocco v RD Congo
Congo v win Cote d’Ivoire/Liberia
Gabon v Mali
Sudan v Egypt
Benin v South Africa
Tunisia v Senegal
Tanzania v Nigeria

Had CAF used the April ranking, Senegal would have been seeded at the expense of Morocco.

Pot 1: Côte d’Ivoire/Liberia, Egypt, Nigeria, South Africa, Algeria, Senegal, Gabon, Tunisia
Pot 2: Mali, Morocco, Benin, Zambia, Sudan, Tanzania, Congo DR, Congo

Outcome of the draw:

Senegal v Zambia
Tunisia v Congo
Tanzania v win Cote d’Ivoire/Liberia
Gabon v Benin
Sudan v Egypt
Morocco v Algeria
South Africa v Mali
Congo DR v Nigeria
