2017 Africa Cup of Nations: Cameroon qualify with win in Mauritania

Cameroon qualified for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations finals with a 1-0 win away to Mauritania in Group M.

A goal from winger Edgar Salli after 31 minutes was enough to send the Indomitable Lions through to Gabon.

Mauritania were put under further pressure in the second half after defender Moustapha Diaw was sent off.

Earlier on Friday, a win for Tunisia meant that Group A of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers will be settled with the final ties in September.

Tunisia, who were 3-nil winners in Djibouti, took the lead after 15 minutes when France-born Naim Sliti scored for the Carthage Eagles after being set-up by Wahbi Khazri.

23-year-old Sliti has been linked with a move away from French second division side Red Star ahead of next season.

Both sides then hit the woodwork before Sliti turned provider on the stroke of half-time as he passed to Hamdi Harbaoui to score Tunisia's second.

Esperance striker Taha Yassine Khenissi replaced Harbaoui shortly after the break and then scored Tunisia's third on the hour mark.

The other game on Friday pits Libya against Morocco, who have already qualified for Gabon.

Libya realistically need a win to keep alive any hope they have of grabbing second spot in Group F.

Twenty more matches over the weekend complete the penultimate round of qualifiers.

The group winners and the best two runners-up will qualify for the finals along with hosts Gabon.
