    Thomas Partey, an Arsenal midfielder, scored the crucial away goal in Ghana’s 1-1 draw with Nigeria on Tuesday.

    More drama unfolded in Algeria, where Ahmed Touba scored in the 118th minute to put Cameroon on the verge of elimination, only for Cameroon to come back in the fourth minute of extra time to snare victory from the jaws of defeat.

    After three and a half hours, penalties were required to separate Egypt and Senegal.

    Egypt had won the first leg 1-0, but lost the second leg in extra time by the same score.

    As a result, the game went to penalty kicks, where Mo Salah missed and Sadio Mane scored as Senegal won 3-1.

    Egypt’s players were hampered by lasers shining in their eyes from home fans.

    Morocco’s Achraf Hakimi was among the scorers.
