Egypt's Queiroz - 'We were not on the pitch in 1st half' as 'controlled' Nigeria win

Today brings another two groups to a close at the delayed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, with the quartet of nations in Group B and C playing their final fixtures in this round.

Four countries will be guaranteed progression into the knock-out stage by the end of the night, while two more will have to wait and see if their points tallies are enough to go through as one of the best four third-placed sides.

First up are the final Group B fixtures, with Guinea and Senegal in the driving seat so far but Malawi also having a chance to stay in the conversation.

Gabon against Morocco is the stand-out encounter, both unbeaten in Group C so far - but Ghana will still be hoping to snatch a top-two finish as well.

When is the match?

Gabon vs Morcco kicks off at 7pm GMT on Tuesday, 18 January 2022 in Yaounde.
