​AFCON: Gambia stuns Tunisia to reach knockout stages

Gambia pulled off a shock win against Tunisia to reach the knockout stages of the African Cup of Nations.

The minnows had Ablie Jallow to thank for netting a stunning goal in stoppage time to give his side all three points.

The shock 1-0 win on Thursday was enough to put Gambia second in their group, behind Mali, moving them into the next round.

Tunisia are still in the competition, as one of the better teams finishing third in their group, and they will take on Nigeria in the next stage of the competition.

Mali and Gambia finished with seven points from three games respectively, with Tunisia managing three.
