Guinea finished third in Group B and must now wait to see if they will play in the knockout stages.

Guinea face an anxious wait to see if they have clinched a place in the last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations following a 2-0 win over 10-man Burundi.

The victory means Guinea finished third in Group B on four points behind shock winners Madagascar and runners-up Nigeria, with four of the six third-placed teams qualifying for the knockout phase.

Guinea's cause was helped after just 12 minutes when Burundi were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Christophe Nduwarugira at Cairo's Al Salam Stadium.

Burundi, though, almost took the lead seven minutes later when Pierre Kwizera fired in a superb 30-yard effort that was tipped over by Ibrahim Kone.

Instead, it was Guinea who made the breakthrough in the 25th minute when Mohamed Yattara capitalised on a poorly cleared corner to fire home from 18 yards.

Auxerre striker Yattara then clinched the three points with his second goal of the game seven minutes after the break.
