AFCON’s Group C ended in thrilling fashion with Gabon drawing 2-2 with Morocco and Comoros beating Ghana 3-2.
The results mean Morocco win the group, Gabon go through as runners up and Comoros possibly in the next round as one of the best third-placed finishers.
But Ghana are OUT of AFCON after picking up just one point from the group, meaning Arsenal will retain the services of star midfielder Thomas Partey earlier than they would have thought.
