Morocco could only manage to draw with Congo 1-1. Achraf Hakimi gave Morocco an early lead in the 6th minute, as he volleyed a cross from a corner into the back of the net. However Congo managed to equalise, when Stuttgart's Silas calmly slotted a low cross home, after he found himself some space in the penalty area.

Morocco 1-1 Congo

Zambia and Tanzania also drew 1-1, as Msuva gave Tanzania an early lead in the 11th minute, only for Zambia to equalise very late in the 88th minute of the match through Patson Daka. But this draw, means that Morocco and Congo still remain ahead of Zambia and Tanzania in the group/

Zambia 1-1 Tanzania

In the other match of the day, South Africa thrashed their neighbours Namibia 4-0. Tau gave the South Africans an early lead through a goal from a penalty in the 14th minute. Then two very well taken goals by Zwane and then a 4th goal by Maseko completed the scoring. After getting a shock win in their opening match against Tunisia, Namibia were brought back down to earth by the South Africans in this match, as they were really outclassed.

South Africa 4-0 Namibia

Equatorial Guinea destroying the hosts Ivory Coast 4-0, has to be the shock of the tournament so far. Equatorial Guinea ended up top of the group, ahead of even Nigeria on goal difference. 

Nigeria also managed to win 1-0 in their match against Guinea-Bissau, thanks to an own goal.

Ivory Coast 0-4 Equatorial Guinea

Nigeria 1-0 Guinea-Bissau

Just seen Mozambique scored two stoppage-time goals vs Ghana. Most likely means Ghana are out unless unlikely results go their way in the next couple of days.

Don't think anyone had Cape Verde topping their group either! Just equalised to make it 2-2 in their game as well.

Cape Verde have been a decent side for a while, but Mozambique have really surprised with their performances against Egypt and Ghana.

I'm just checking results every now and then, and I'm really surprised to see teams like Cape Verde and Equatorial Guinea topping their groups. :o And not even easy groups, name-wise. Ghana only 3rd in Cap Verde's group, Equatorial Guinea ahead of Nigeria and Cote d'Ivoire. :o

In today's games, Senegal won again as they defeated Guinea 2-0, with Abdoulaye Seck and Liman Ndiaye the scorers. 

Senegal 2-0 Guinea

In the other match, Cameroon beat Gambia 3-2 with Ekambi, an own goal by Gomez and Christopher Wooh the source of Cameroon's goals, with Jallow and Colley the scorers for Gambia. Cameroon moved into 2nd place in the group after this win just behind Senegal.

Cameroon 3-2 Gambia

Algerian coach is getting roasted. This was one of Algeria's greatest set of players and they've had only failures even after winning Afcon in 2019.

Another shock result in the competition, as Algeria lost to Mauritania. The only goal of the game was scored by Mauritania's Dellah Yaly. Mahrez and company have been knocked out early in the competition.

Mauritania 1-0 Algeria

Angola beat Burkina Faso 2-0 as goals from Mabululu and Zini secured them victory and 1st place in the group.

Algeria, Ghana and now Tunisia out of AFCON.

Ivory Coast out if Zambia draw or win. 

Can't remember when so many bigger footballing nations exited the group stage.

Nigeria faced the hosts the Ivory Coast in the final of the African Cup of Nations. Troost-Ekong gave Nigeria the lead in the first half with a brave headed goal. But the Ivory Coast equalised in the 2nd half, with a powerful Franck Kessie headed goal aimed at the near post. The Nigerian keeper got a hand to Kessie's header, but he couldn't stop it from going into the net. Sebastian Haller would then score the Ivory Coast's 2nd goal, as he cleverly flicked Adingra's cross with his right foot into the far corner of the Nigerian net. Haller's goal was a superb end to the match as the Ivory Coast would hold on to win the African Cup of Nations final and the whole competition.

Ivory Coast 2-1 Nigeria
