AFCON: Gabon overcome Comoros without Aubameyang, Lemina

Gabon secured a 1-0 victory over Comoros in their opening African Cup of Nations game on Monday.

Despite missing talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and influential midfielder Mario Lemina due to COVID-19 infections, Gabon never looked like losing the match.

Al-Arabi forward Aaron Boupendzaas scored the decisive goal after 16 minutes.

Gabon now sit joint-top of Group C after Sofiane Boufal's 83rd-minute strike handed Morocco a narrow win over Ghana.

They face Morocco on Friday before Gabon play Ghana.
