And it was star striker Musa Barrow who broke the deadlock late in the game to send the lowest-ranked side into the quarterfinals.

The 23-year-old Bologna striker edged past Guinea’s three-man defence and fine-tuned the bottom left corner to take his tally to two.

Both teams received red cards afterwards and ended the game with ten men.

Gambia’s substitute Yusupha Njie was sent off for elbowing Ibrahima Conte.

But Conte himself then had to take the red for a second countable offense.

Next for Gambia will be the host Cameroon or the giant killers Comoros.
