We had a good game last night which saw defending champions, Cameroon and hosts, Egypt getting knocked out of the tournament.

Today, another team will seal a quarter-final berth whiles the other team prepare to return home. The game on hands is the round of 16 fixture between Madagascar and DR Congo.

Madagascar might be known more for a trilogy of animated films than football, but the script will continue to change if another famous victory is secured at the Africa Cup of Nations today.

The tournament newcomers are set to make their knockout rounds debut in a surprise last-16 date with Democratic Republic of Congo in Alexandria, Egypt.

It has the potential to be another milestone moment amid a dream sequence for Madagascar, who drew with Guinea, beat Burundi and then stunned Nigeria 2-0 to advance as Group B winners.

Their opponents, DR Congo, are ahead by 59 places in the FIFA rankings but only scraped through Group A in third place, courtesy of a victory over Zimbabwe.
