AFCON: Shock result as Equatorial Guinea demolishes host nat

Ivory Coast was met with a surprise defeat as they lost 0-4 to Equatorial Guinea in the last group game of the AFCON competition.

The Ivorians were the favourite coming into this clash especially as they have the luxury of playing in front of their home fans.

But Equatorial Guinea took a surprise lead in the contest as part of the package they serve the host in this match.

Equatorial Guinea Skipper Emilio Nsue opened the scoring in the 42nd minute to make it 1-0 for the Equatorial Guinea side.

Carlos Akapo made the assist for skipper Nsue in the game. It finished 1-0 at the break.

However, the home side came into the game hoping to get a response in the second half but their quest for a goal exposed them further defensively.

The host nation Ivory Coast conceded the second goal when Pablo Ganet scored for Equatorial Guinea to make it 2-0.

Emilio Nsue then added the third to seal his brace thus making it 3-0 in the 75th minute. At the same time, Yannick Buyla scored in the 88th minute to make it 4-0 against Ivory Coast.

To the surprise of many people who understand the pedigree of both sides at the international level, it finished 4-0 in favour of Equatorial Guinea.
