Tunisia and South Africa filled the final two places in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) last-16 draw after a finish to the group stage in Egypt. Already-qualified Mali defeated Angola 1-0 in Ismailia to win Group E and eliminate the losers from the competition. Tunisia, ranked second in Africa behind Senegal, drew 0-0 with Mauritania in Suez but the point secured second place behind Mali. Mali won the group with seven points followed by Tunisia with three and Angola and Mauritania with two each. Angola losing meant South Africa sneaked into the knockout phase, joining Guinea, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Benin as the best four third-place teams.
