Zambia through to last eight at a price

Zambia and Cameroon reached the African Nations Cup quarter-finals as a dramatic final day in Group D saw Gabon — top before kick-off — miss out on qualification.

Goals from Rainford Kalaba and James Chamanga earned Herve Renard's Zambia side a deserved 2-1 victory against Gabon in Benguela despite Fabrice Do Marcolino's late consolation.

But it came at a price, with both Kabala and centre-half Kampamba Chintu collecting bookings which rule them out of the last eight clash.

Cameroon, managed by Paul Le Guen, booked their place in the last eight after twice coming from behind to seal a 2-2 draw against Tunisia in Lubango.
