Ghana, Zimbabwe and Guinea-Bissau book African Nations Cup spots

Ghana head coach Avram Grant has been roundly criticised for not spending very much time in the country.
Avram Grant oversaw Ghana's qualification for the African Nations Cup.

Ghana and Zimbabwe booked their place at the African Nations Cup thanks to victories on Sunday, while Guinea-Bissau will join them due to Congo's 2-1 defeat against Kenya.

Ghana beat Mauritius 2-0 with goals late in the second-half from Andre Ayew and Christian Atsu giving Avram Grant's Black Stars the result they needed to progress from Group H.

And Zimbabwe's 3-0 win against Malawi, courtesy of goals from Knowledge Musona, Khama Billiat and Cuthbert Malajila, means they cannot be caught in Group L by Swaziland, who beat Guinea 1-0, on head-to-head results.

Elsewhere, Group B is very much still up for grabs with DR Congo and Central African Republic vying for top spot after emphatic wins.

Goal! Montreal Impact 3, LA Galaxy 2. Didier Drogba (Montreal Impact) from a free kick with a right footed shot to the high center of the goal.

DR Congo ran out 6-1 winners at Madagascar with Cedric Bakambu (2) and Yannick Bolasie among the scorers giving them a two-point lead at the top of the group with one round of games remaining. Central African Republic, meanwhile, beat Angola 3-1.

Group A is much the same. Following Liberia's 2-2 draw with Togo the Lone Stars are level on 10 points with Tunisia, while third-placed Togo are only two behind on eight.

Group D will also be decided in the final round of games after Burkina Faso's 1-0 win at Comoros put them level on points with Uganda.

In Group J, Ethiopia ran out 2-1 winners against Lesotho to consolidate second place but they cannot catch Algeria.

Benin's qualifying fixture against Equatorial Guinea has been rescheduled for June 12 on the condition elections for a new Benin Football Federation Executive Committee take place on or before June 11.
