As a result, South Africa’s Bafana Bafana failed to qualify for the finals, while Ghana won Group C after thrashing Sao Tome and Principe 3-1 on the same day.

Group J was won by Tunisia as they ended a successful qualifying campaign with a 2-1 victory over Equatorial Guinea, whose consolation goal was netted by Firas Chaouat (own-goal).

Tanzania secured a narrow 1-0 victory Libya in another Group J match with Simon Msuva scoring the only of the encounter.

Lastly, Namibia were inspired to a 2-1 victory over Guinea by a brace from Peter Shalulile, who scored in either half of the Group A game.
