Equatorial Guinea will face a tricky African Cup of Nations quarterfinal test against Senegal to be played at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo, Yaoundé, on Sunday.

They needed penalties to beat Mali by 6-5 after a goalless draw in extra time to reach the quarterfinals as they set a date with Senegal.

It’s their third time in as many participations while Mali failed to imitate what they did in Cameroon 50 years ago when they reached the final in 1972.

Their opponent Senegal roared into the quarterfinals defeating Cape Verde Cape 2-0 at the Stade Omnisports de Bafoussam in a round of 16 matches on Tuesday.

Goals from Sadio Mane and Bamba Dieng’s sealed the victory for Aliou Cisse’s men as two Cape Verde players receive a red card.

Meanwhile, debutants Gambia will take on hosts in Cameroon in an unprecedented quarterfinal that promises a lot of excitement on Saturday at the Japoma Stadium, Douala, in Douala.

The Scorpions challenge the Indomitable Lions for the quarterfinal clash of the ongoing TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon 2021.

Hosts and five-time champions Cameroon may seem like favourites, but they have to face an emerging force in continental football, The Gambia.
