Having suffered an historic defeat to South Sudan almost exactly a year ago, Equatorial Guinea got their revenge in the reverse 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Nuevo Estadio de Malabo on Sunday.

Goals from Jose Miranda, Emilio Nsue, Carlos Akapo and Ivan Iyanga secured a 4-0 win for Nzalang Nacional over their Group C counterparts.

Victory in their final of six qualifying matches secured third spot in the group for Equatorial Guinea with the 'Bright Star' condemned to bottom spot - Mali are set to advance to the showpiece in Gabon as group winners.

For the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations hosts, the win also goes some way in making up for the defeat they suffered in Juba 12 months ago.

A 1-0 win for South Sudan on that faithful day was their first ever competitive victory, with the young nation still searching for their first win on foreign soil.
