Wilfried Zaha scored as Ivory Coast qualified for the last 16 at the African Cup of Nations with a 4-1 victory over Namibia.

Namibia's Peter Shalulile failed to take the two best chances of the opening half-hour, while Max Gradel sliced wide at the other end.

Goalkeeper Loydt Kazapua almost gifted the Elephants an opener when he fumbled a cross straight to Wilfried Bony, but blocked the former Swansea striker's shot with his body outside the box before gathering his follow-up effort.

But Gradel fired the Elephants in front six minutes before half-time when he was ruled marginally onside as he ran onto Franck Kessie's superb lofted through-ball and fired across Kazapua.

it was 2-0 just before the hour when Serey Die let fly from 35 yards and a deflection off defender Ryan Nyambe left the keeper helpless.

Wilfried Zaha, who had twice been denied clear penalties, sent a weak effort straight at Kazapua and Namibia cut the deficit when goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo cleared the ball straight to Joslin Kamatuka, who shimmied past Serge Kanon before finishing.

But Zaha - who was the subject of a £40m bid from Arsenal, according to Sky Sports News - and substitute Maxwel Cornet scored in the final 10 minutes to make victory safe for Ibrahim Kamara's side, who finish second.

Morocco seal top spot in Group D

Mbark Boussoufa struck as Morocco clinched top spot in Group D at the African Cup of Nations with a late 1-0 win over South Africa.

The Al-Shabab forward won it in stoppage time at the Al-Salam Stadium in Cairo.

Achraf Hakimi hit the crossbar for Morocco while Youssef En-Nesyri also missed a fine chance before Boussoufa pounced, which left South Africa's hopes of qualifying from the group in the balance.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane scored twice after missing a penalty as Senegal reached the last 16 at the Africans Cup of Nations with a 3-0 win over Kenya.

The forward bagged a late brace to make up for seeing Patrick Matasi save his first-half spot-kick in Cairo on Monday.

Ismaila Sarr opened the scoring in the second half while Philemon Otieno was dismissed for Kenya after conceding Senegal's second penalty - which Mane converted.

Senegal finish second in Group C, behind Algeria.

Algeria stay perfect

Adam Ounas and Islam Slimani inspired Algeria to a comfortable 3-0 win over Tanzania as they completed a 100 per cent Group C record in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Leicester forward Slimani, who spent last season on loan at Fenerbahce, gave his side a 35th-minute lead when he took advantage of some woeful defending to latch on to a hopeful long pass from Ounas and stroke the ball past goalkeeper Metacha Mnata.

Ounas quickly slotted the second after a neat one-two with Slimani, and the pair linked up again for the third in first-half stoppage time as Ounas accelerated away from the defence, rounded Mnata and finished.

Algeria's Mohamed Fares went closest in a largely quiet second half with an effort against a post and Baghdad Bounedjah fired just wide.

John Bocco and Adi Yussuf missed late chances for a Tanzania consolation as their side finished bottom of the group without a point.
