AFCON 2015: E’Guinea Edges Out Tunisia In Controversy

Javier Balboa struck twice as tiny Equatorial Guinea produced one of the greatest African Nations Cup shocks by eliminating Tunisia 2-1 after extra time in a quarter-final marred by violent scenes, with the referee attacked at the end of the game.

A soft penalty in stoppage time allowed Equatorial Guinea to level when Tunisia seemed destined for the semi-finals after Ahmed Akaichi put the highly fancied North Africans 1-0 ahead in the 70th minute.

Balboa converted the kick to take the game to an additional 30 minutes and curled home a stunning free-kick in the 102nd minute to win it and set off jubilant celebrations across the country.

Equatorial Guinea now take on either Ghana or Guinea, who clash in their quarter-final in Malabo on Sunday (today).
