Below is the Group B table and how it ended in the group.
By this, Madagascar and Nigeria Nigeria have qualified to the next round while Guinea must wait to see if they will qualify as one of the best third-placed teams after they beat Burundi by the same two goals margin on the last day of matches in the group.
On the day, Nigeria never came to the party on matchday three but the hunger for a victory that will secure the progression of Madagascar into the round of 16 came to play. They took an important early lead just 13 minutes after the start of the game through Lalaina Nomenjanahary, the 33-year-old midfielder who plays for Paris FC in France.
In the 53rd minute, Nigeria had the second shock of their lives when Andria doubled the lead for the Madagascar national football team, nicknamed Barea in the ongoing AFCON 2019 tournament in Egypt.
All credit to the determined and success hungry Madagascan team that prevailed on the night and beat one of the favourites and Africa’s biggest team at the AFCON. Football results are about taking your chances when they come and that was what they did on the night. Kudos Madagascar
