Despite a shock 2-1 defeat to Zimbabwe who have already been eliminated, Guinea have qualified for the round of 16 from Group B at the AFCON 2021.
History was made in the tie as Rwandan referee Salima Mukansanga becomes the first woman to officiate an AFCON match.
Liverpool star midfielder Naby Keita’s goal was only a consolation for Guinea, as first half goals from Knowledge Musona (26 minutes) and Kudakwashe Mahachi (43 minutes) was enough to earn Zimbabwe a first AFCON win since 2006.
Guinea ended the preliminary stage on four points behind group winners Senegal (five points).
And in the group’s other game, Senegal settled for a 0-0 draw with Malawi and advance into the knockout round as group winners.
The Teranga Lions picked up their second straight draw after a hard fought 1-0 win against Zimbabwe in their opener to finish top.
Malawi now have to wait to see if they will finish as one of the best third-placed teams to reach the next round.
