AFCON daily: Egypt and Equatorial Guinea claim historic penalty wins in last 16 • FRANCE 24

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “AFCON daily: Egypt and Equatorial Guinea claim historic penalty wins in last 16 • FRANCE 24” – below is their description.

The Pharaohs of Egypt claimed the enormous scalp of the Ivory Coast as they won their last 16 clash on spot kicks 5-4 in Douala on Wednesday evening. Eric Bailly missed the crucial penalty for the Elephants while star Egypt player Mohamed Salah converted to send his team through. The second game between Mali and Equatorial Guinea was almost a carbon copy, with no goals scored over 120 minutes. But it was the National Thunder who won 6-5 on penalties after Mali’s Falaye Sacko had his effort saved. Jean-Emile Jammine is joined by Sports Editor Simon Harding and Sports Reporter James Vasina to discuss all the action.

In This Story: Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea, officially the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, is a country located on the west coast of Central Africa, with an area of 28,000 square kilometres (11,000 sq mi). Formerly the colony of Spanish Guinea, its post-independence name evokes its location near both the Equator and the Gulf of Guinea. As of 2015, the country had a population of 1,225,367.

Equatorial Guinea consists of two parts, an insular and a mainland region. The insular region consists of the islands of Bioko (formerly Fernando Pó) in the Gulf of Guinea and Annobón, a small volcanic island which is the only part of the country south of the equator. Bioko Island is the northernmost part of Equatorial Guinea and is the site of the country’s capital, Malabo. The Portuguese-speaking island nation of São Tomé and Príncipe is located between Bioko and Annobón. The mainland region, Río Muni, is bordered by Cameroon on the north and Gabon on the south and east. It is the location of Bata, Equatorial Guinea’s largest city, and Ciudad de la Paz, the country’s planned future capital. Rio Muni also includes several small offshore islands, such as Corisco, Elobey Grande, and Elobey Chico. The country is a member of the African Union, Francophonie, OPEC and the CPLP.

Since the mid-1990s, Equatorial Guinea has become one of sub-Saharan Africa’s largest oil producers.
