Debutants The Gambia booked their place in the quarter-finals at the Africa Cup of Nations as

Musa Barrow’s goal gave them a famous 1-0 victory over Guinea.

Bologna forward Barrow collected a pass and slotted past Aly Keita from the centre of the box in the 71st minute.

Musa Barrow kept his composure to score his second goal at the Nations Cup.

Defender Ibrahima Conte had an equaliser ruled out for offside before The Gambia’s Yusupha Njie was sent off.

Guinea struck the post in injury time before another shot was tipped onto the crossbar by Baboucarr Gaye.

It was a stunning save by Gaye to keep out the powerful strike by Jose Kante, which came immediately after

Conte had rattled the left-hand upright from a narrow angle.

The Gambia, who are 150th in the world, will now face Cameroon in the last eight on Saturday after the hosts saw off Comoros 2-1.
