Two teams from Group D; the Syli Nationale of Guinea and the Chipolopolo of Zambia have sailed through to the quarter final stage of the 2020 CHAN in Cameroon
Guinea played a 2-2 stalemate with the Tiafra Stars of Tanzania to move from four to five points at the Bepanda Reunification in Douala
Meantime, the Chipolopolos of Zambia played hard to keep a virgin draw with the Brave Warriors of Namibia at the 20, 000 seater Limbe Omnisports Stadium.
Infact, Namibia weighed in with tact and great show of professionalism to earn at least a point in their second participation at the CHAN though they exited at group stage
The boys of Bobby Samaria of Namibia registered a good game seemingly more than Zambia to the amusement of fans and football lovers. Namibia registered a total of twenty-four shots in the game and Zambia twenty-one.
Back at the Bepanda Reunification Stadium, the beauty of the game was the incredible fans of Guinea who turned out in their numbers to support theirs.
Guinea opened scores as early as the 4th minute of the game by Yakhouba Barry through a penalty leaving the scores at 1-0.
Tanzania leveled the scores in some 19 minutes to keep the score board at 1-1 at the 23rd minute of play thanks to a goal from a mid fielder, Bakara Majogoro
The stalemate was broken at the 69th minute when Edward Charles Manyama from the defense line scored to increase the tally for Tanzania to 2-1, unfortunately Guinea stole the show through Victor Kantabadouna with an equaliser some 13 minutes later.
Tanzania could have topped Group D with 6 points if they won but the draw leaves Guinea at five points same as Zambia who played a goalless match with Nambia.
The two are the last to make a total of eight teams at the quarter-final stage
