South Africa and Tunisia filled the final two places in the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon 2019) last-16 draw on Tuesday after a tense finish to the group stage in Egypt.

Already-qualified Mali defeated Angola 1-0 in Ismailia through an Amadou Haidara thunderbolt to win Group E and eliminate the losers from the competition.

Tunisia could only draw 0-0 with debutants Mauritania in Suez but the point secured second place behind Mali.

Angola’s defeat meant South Africa sneaked into the knockout phase, joining Guinea, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Benin as the best four third-place teams.

Mali will face the Ivory Coast in the round of 16 while Tunisia meet Ghana, who are chasing a seventh consecutive top-four finish in the Cup of Nations.

The highlight of the round is the clash of defending champions Cameroon and Nigeria, who have won the competition eight times between them.

Hosts Egypt, Algeria and Morocco, the three countries who finished first in groups with perfect three-win records, all face opponents who came third.
