Afcon Round Of 16 Fixtures: Defending Champions Cameroon to face Nigeria

Cameroon, the holders, will face the three-time Africa Cup of Nations winners Nigeria in the last 16 of the 2019 edition after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Benin, who sealed their place in the knockout stages for the first time.Benin 0-0 Cameroon: Africa Cup of Nations – as it happened

Clarence Seedorf’s side needed a victory to guarantee they progressed from Group F in first place but found a stubborn Benin side hard to break down in Ismailia and had to settle for second. They now play Gernot Rohr’s side in Alexandria on Saturday, with the hosts, Egypt, potentially waiting in the quarter-finals.

Michel Dussuyer’s Benin team held on for a point that means they progress as one of the four best third-placed teams, but will face a tough test against unbeaten Morocco in Cairo on Friday. Surprise package Madagascar will face DR Congo in Alexandria on Sunday.Quick Guide

Meanwhile, Ghana’s 2-0 victory over Guinea-Bissau thanks to goals from Jordan Ayew and Thomas Partey ensured they topped Group F and earned a potentially easier path to the final. The Black Stars will now face Tunisia, who came second in Group E after a goalless draw with Mauritania.

Mali secured top spot in Group E after Amadou Haïdara scored the only goal of the game against Angola in Suez. The RB Leipzig midfielder struck from 25 yards out after 37 minutes with an early contender for goal of the tournament.

The Eagles will stay in Suez to take on Ivory Coast on Monday. Defeat for Angola allowed South Africa to sneak into the knockout stages, where they will face Egypt.
