Hosts Rwanda have qualified for the quarter-finals of the African Nations Championship after defeating 10-man Gabon 2-1 in Group A.
Ernest Sugira put Rwanda ahead in the 42nd minute of the first half.
Sugira made it 2-0 for the hosts after he grabbed his second goal in the 47th minute.
In the 55th minute, Boupendza reduced the deficit, making it 2-1.
But in the 58th minute, Gabon’s Yannick was sent off after he received his second yellow card.
Rwanda’s next game is against Morocco on Sunday.
Gabon still stand a chance of progressing into the last eight provided they win their last game against Cote d’Ivoire and hope result in the game between Morocco and Rwanda favours them.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
