​AFCON: Equatorial Guinea stun Mali to reach quarter-finals

Equatorial Guinea bested Mali on penalties to reach the African Cup of Nations quarter-finals.

Mali were the favourites going into the game, but Equatorial Guinea held their own throughout the contest.

A combination of dogged defending and outstanding keeping from Jesus Owono ensured Equatorial Guinea were always in with a shout of progressing.

Owono continued his heroics in the penalty shootout, saving twice to help his team go through 6-5 on penalties.

Equatorial Guinea take on Senegal in their next game of the competition.
