Already eliminated Zimbabwe upset Guinea with a 2-1 win at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Yaounde on Tuesday but Guinea still advanced to the last 16 as runners-up in Group B.


A Knowledge Musona header and a Kudakwashe Mahachi shot gave the Zimbabweans a two-goal half-time advantage that was reduced when Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita netted on 49 minutes.


Despite losing, Guinea scraped into the round of 16 as runners-up thanks to a better head-to-head record than Malawi who drew with Senegal 0-0.


Naby Keita pulled a goal back for Guinea early in the second half but they could not find the equaliser and the Liverpool midfielder was cautioned late in the game for dissent and, in a further blow, for Guinea will miss their next game in the knockout phase.
