Guinea booked their place in the next round of the 2016 African Nations Championship qualifiers, after holding Liberia to a 1-1 draw in Monrovia on Sunday.

The Syli National sealed a 4-2 aggregate win over the Lone Star, following their 3-1 victory in Bamako in the first leg.

Liberia revived their qualification hopes when Vitalis Gobeoh Sieh put his side ahead from the penalty spot in the 37th minute.

Pushing for a second goal after the break to get the upper hand on away goals, the locals were however caught off guard just before the hour mark, with substitute Alseny Camara levelling matters for the visitors.

Guinea managed to keep the scoreline at 1-1 until the final whistle to extend their continental journey.

Kanfory Bangoura’s men will face Senegal in the next round in October, with the winners to seal their spot in the tournament’s finals in Rwanda.
