Confederation of African Football (Giza)

26 January 2012

Equatorial Guinea captain Edjogo-Owono Juvenal has described their qualification to the last eight of the 2012 Orange Africa Cup of Nations as one of the best moments in the history of the country.

Nzalang Nacional beat the Teranga Lions of Senegal 2-1 on Wednesday at the Estadio de Bata to seal their place at the last eight and becoming the first team to book their place at the knockout stage.

"It is an important victory. Today is a historic day in the life of this country. The fans are very excited and I am very proud to be part of this piece of history," an elated Edjogo-Ewono said after the match.

The Spanish-based midfielder admitted that Senegal handed them a strong test, which they passed in the end thanks to David Alvarez's superb strike in added-on time.

"It was a very difficult game as Senegal also wanted to win to remain in the competition. They (Senegal) started very well and we had to wait for our chance. After, we had to wait for the decisive moment, which came very late.

"Despite the fact that we have qualified, we still want to win our last match against Zambia. Our target is to finish as the winners of the group and we can only achieve that by winning our last game."

Coach Gilson Paulo shares the same view as his captain regarding their final Group A match against the Chipolopolo of Zambia on Sunday, January 29 in Malabo.

"Senegal is a very good team with talented players. We did a good job with the win but we are not there yet. We want to win all our matches to finish tops in our group," said the Brazilian.

Nzalang Nacional has six points, Zambia on four points, with Libya and Senegal in that order with one and no point respectively.
