Bittersweet win for Libya, Zambia tops
30 January 2012, 09:25
Equatorial Guinea - Fairytale qualifiers Libya enjoyed a bittersweet day on Sunday, defeating Senegal for their first Caf Africa Cup of Nations win since 1982, yet missing out on the quarterfinals.
The Libyans' 2-1 defeat of already eliminated Senegal in Bata was insufficient to lift them into the last eight after Zambia beat Equatorial Guinea 1-0 in Malabo.
That left Zambia as the Group A winners, with the significant reward of avoiding a probable quarterfinal date with competition favourites Côte d'Ivoire. That dubious honour now looks set to fall to Group A runners-up Equatorial Guinea.
