African Cup of Nations: Updates & Previews

Zambia beat already-qualified Equatorial Guinea 1-0 in the African Cup of Nations on Sunday to snatch first place in Group A and join the co-host in the quarterfinals.

Ihaab Boussefi's two goals weren't enough to send Libya through to the quarterfinals at the African Cup of Nations despite a 2-1 win over Senegal on Sunday. Boussefi struck in the fifth and 84th minutes to give Libya victory at Estadio de Bata, but Zambia's 1-0 win over co-host Equatorial Guinea in Group A's other game in Malabo - which was played at the same time - saw the Zambians progress. Senegal slumped to a third straight loss at the tournament and a humiliating end to its Cup of Nations after being tipped as a possible contender.
