Cameroon squeezes into quarters
Cameroon just managed to reach the quarter-finals at the expense of Gabon after three teams in Group D finished with four points.
The Africa Nations Cup uses head-to-head when teams are tied on points and because they were three teams involved the matches between those teams had to considered.
Cameroon had earlier lost to Gabon and so had the head-to-head been between the two teams Gabon would have reached the quarter-finals instead.
Here is what the table used for the Group D head-to-head looks like:
Elsewhere in Group A, hosts Angola won the group and will now play Ghana to decide who reaches the semis. Ghana beat Burkina Faso 1-nil to reach the quarters.
Ivory Coast who were the first team to reach the quarters will play Algeria after the Algerians secured their place through the goalless draw against the hosts.
Defending champions Egypt will face Cameroon after going through their group with a perfect record.
Zambia will play Nigeria after the Super Eagles dispatched Mozambique 3-nil to secure second place in Group C.
