Zambia and Guinea became the last countries to seal their qualification to the quarter-finals of CHAN in Cameroon.

The Chipolopolo played out a goalless draw with SADC neighbors Namibia while the Syli Nationale drew 2-2 with Tanzania to claim leadership of Group D.

Guinea drew first blood early in the first half through a Yakhouba Barry penalty before Tanzania responded through Baraka Majogoro. Edward Manyama then gave the Taifa stars the lead after the resumption of play before Guinea scored a leveller through Victor Kantabadouno.
