Man of the Match: Javier Balboa

Javier Balboa’s brace against Tunisia is the reason why the host nation will be going into the semifinals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Taking a penalty in such a crucial stage of the match can be a nightmare but Balboa took it well, ensuring the game ended 1-1 and went to extra time.

His set piece in the first half of the extra time proved how classy he is, as he completed his brace with a curling shot into the top corner, sealing a 2-1 win for Equatorial Guinea.

Apart from that, EG did not attack as much as Tunisia did, but Balboa was always on the match trying to make a difference in the front.
