FRANCEVILLE, Gabon — Gabon snatched a place in the African Cup of Nations quarterfinals and eliminated Morocco after a dramatic 3-2 win on Friday in the craziest game yet at a highly unpredictable tournament.
Gabon President Ali Bongo lived every moment of his team's rollercoaster ride at Stade de l'Amitie as it came from 1-0 down to lead with two goals in a minute, conceded a 90th-minute equalizer and then won a stunning game with a stoppage-time free kick.
Bongo was slumped in his chair in Libreville, then hugging officials and jumping with joy.
Tunisia also qualified from Group C after Gabon's unlikely 2-1 victory against Niger with its own 90th-minute winner.
Ghana and Mali surely can't produce anything like it when they meet Saturday in Group D.
