Africa Cup Of Nations: Late Juary Soares Goal Deny Gabon



The 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) got underway as Guinea-Bissau who were responsible for Chipolopolo’s missing out of the competition, holds Gabon to a 1-1 draw at the Stade de l’Amitie in Libreville on Saturday.

The minnows stunned host Gabon with a late minute equaliser in the opening game of the competition in what was the country first ever game at international level, while Burkina Faso also held Cameroon to a stalemate.

Gabon appeared to be heading to earn three points at the start of the tournament until Juary Soares handed the debutants a late equaliser from a free-kick at the die minutes of the game.


“This is a moment of joy for us,” said Guinea-Bissau coach, Baciro Cande, in comments carried by the AFP News agency. “Despite our country’s difficulties we managed to qualify,”

Gabon was unable to seize their chance after Malick Evouna failed to convert in 20 minutes, the host came firing minutes into the second-half with Deis Bouanga forcing Jonas Mendes into a fine save.

“We knew Gabon have an excellent team. We have our limits, but we had ambitions coming here and we will try to go as far as possible.”

Just after halftime Borussia’s Dortmund forward, Aubameyang scored from a close range from Denis Bouanga’s cross, Aubameyang squandered another chance to make it 2-0 in the 69th minute after Lemina incisive pass met the captain and sent the chance over the crossbar.
