In the final matches for Group A, Zambia takes on Equatorial Guinea in a battle that will determine which team finishes top of the Group. Pre-tournament favorites Senegal have crashed out of the 2012 AFCON after a surprising 2-1 defeat to co-hosts Equatorial Guinea. Equatorial Guinea have progressed to the quarter-finals as a result of their two wins, also including an opening 1-0 victory over Libya. Zambia find themselves on four points in the group, with a 2-1 defeat of Senegal and a 2-2 draw with Libya.
Senegal are bottom of the group with zero points, while Libya have a single point, and are the only threat to Zambia’s progression to the quarter-finals, in the event that the they win and the second-place Zambia are beaten, goal difference would be used to decide their fate.
