In 2012 (with Gabon) and in 2015, it had indeed benefited from its status as an organizing country to invite itself into the competition. This time, the Equatorial Guineans owe their qualification only to themselves, if not to their defender Emilio Nsue who freed an entire country by scoring the precious qualification goal in the last moments of the match against Tanzania (90th ).</span></span></span></span></span></span>
Equatorial Guinea is back by far in the image of its course which had seen it start these qualifications with two defeats. But the double victory against Libya (3-2; 1-0) changed everything to the point of dreaming of a ticket for Cameroon. Thursday it came true.
Libya, she lost her last illusions by bowing heavily against Tunisia (2-5). In front of an already qualified team, the Libyans had no other choice but to win this meeting to maintain the hope of a qualification for Cameroon. But the Carthage Eagles were ruthless, atomizing an opponent who nevertheless had time to believe in opening the scoring in the 21st minute by Miaid Ellafi. An advantage lost in the 39th minute after the equalizer of defender Yassine Meriah.
The very enterprising Knights of the Mediterranean will be overwhelmed by the Eagles of Carthage with goals from Seifeddine Jaziri (48th) and Mohamed Drager (51st). The reduction of the score by Muaid Ellafi (54ee) will maintain the illusion of an improbable comeback before Ben Slimane with a magnificent strike from 25 meters into the skylight and Jaziri (90 + 4) definitively put an end to Hamdou’s dreams. Elhouni and his family.
