Libya scored an injury-time winner against Rwanda to take them through to the quarter-finals of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) as runners-up in Group C.

Substitute Elmutasem Abushnaf scored the crucial goal after Libya dominated but looked like missing out on the win they needed to advance after squandering chances and hitting the post.

Nigeria came from behind to beat already-eliminated Equatorial Guinea 3-1 to ensure they finished top of the group on seven points.
