BREAKING! AFCON 2017 Host Gabon, Aubameyang & Guinea-Bissau Crash Out Of Tournament

Gabon and Guinea-Bissau have both crashed out of the ongoing AFCON 2017 at the group stage.

Former African footballer of the year Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored two goals in three games for Gabon which he captains but that was not enough to secure a quarter-final place.

Gabon’s goalless draw with Cameroon in their third was not enough to secure a place in the next round.

Burkina Faso meanwhile progress to AFCON 2017 quarter-finals as group A winners after beating Guinea-Bissau.

A defensive mix up gifted Burkina Faso the lead, as defender Rudinilson Silva headed past onrushing goalkeeper Jonas Mendes and into his own net.

On-loan Ajax forward Bertrand Traore doubled the advantage with a composed left-footed finish after the break.
