Group A

The Group stage of the African Cup of Nation is gradually coming to an end. Yesterday saw the final legs of matches in the Group A. Gabon, the host nation, took on Cameroon while Burkina Faso played Guinea Bissau. All teams went into the game yesternight with a chance to secure a ticket into the quarterfinal of the competition; a ticket available for only the best two teams. At the end of the day’s game, Burkina Faso and Cameroon were the victors both qualifying with 5points. Burkina Faso however edged Cameroon with the goal difference to top the group. Disappointingly, Gabon has failed to win any match in the tournament. With only 3points from 3 games, the host has crashed out of the competition. Guinea Bissau also crashed out with only one draw in 3 games.

In Group B.

Final Actions prepared to go down by 8pm (Nigerian Time) today with Senegal taking on Algeria and Zimbabwe against Tunisia. Senegal goes into the encounter tonight with their heads high having automatically qualified. Senegal has however become a determination for the success of the other team members. Zimbabwe and Tunisia will be hoping on a defeat for Algeria while they settle scores among their selves. Riyad Mahrez’ Algeria on the other hand, needs an outright victory against Senegal to scale through. In all of this, Senegal still needs the game not only to prove their worth but to also secure the top spot and maintain their unbeaten run in the tournament. Tonight will surely separate the boys from the men.
