There is still a chance for the final to be contested by teams that qualified from ‘GROUP A’. Cameroon and Burkina Faso are a win away from the finale.
There is also the chance for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to face each other in a final with their national team. Egypt and Senegal are a win away from the finale.

Karl Toko Ekambi scored both goals for Cameroon to take a deserved victory to the semifinal.

{This should go without saying}: Reaching the quarterfinal as a tournament debutant and also as the lowest-ranked nation in the is an overachievement.
Gambia will/should be proud of the tournament they had. It took the host nation to send them out.

Before getting booked a red card for a dangerous challenge,
Dango Ouattara scored the only goal of the match to give Burkina Faso their ticket to the semifinal
