Gabon maintain unbeaten run with 1-0 win over Tunisia

Gabon secured the top slot in group C at the African Cup of Nations Tuesday by beating Tunisia 1-0 with a goal by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored in his third successive Cup of Nations match.

REUTERS - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored for the third successive game at the African Nations Cup to give co-hosts Gabon a 1-0 win over Tunisia on Tuesday that ensured they finished top of Group C.

Both teams had already qualified and Tunisia made eight changes to their starting line-up but that did not prevent them producing a niggly encounter which included a pushing match between several players at the end.

Gabon took one of few chances in the 62nd minute with a quick exchange of passes which sliced through the Tunisian midfield.

The break ended with Daniel Cousin finding Aubameyang and the 22-year-old St Etienne player scored with a low shot from the edge of the area with Tunisia goalkeeper Rami Jeridi unsighted.

Three-goal Aubameyang has been the inspiration behind Gabon's surprise run into the last eight, achieved with a dramatic 3-2 win over Morocco in their previous match.

Gabon topped the group with a maximum nine points while Tunisia finished with six.
