Bafana Bafana vs Egypt – AFCON Last 16

With the group stage of the Africa Cup of Nations now being finished, here are all the Round of 16 fixtures, including who Bafana Bafana will face.

After Group E and F concluded the final match round of the group stages on Tuesday, Stuart Baxter’s Bafana find themselves among the last-16 despite winning just one game in Group D.

However, South Africa qualified as fourth team among the best third-placed countries, with the others being Benin, Congo DR and Guinea.

Bafana got lucky that Mali beat Angola 1-0 in their final Group F game, which saw Angola being eliminated from the competition, while a draw would have been enough for them to go ahead of Bafana among the best third-placed teams.

As a consequence, we now have some tasty last-16 clashes, with Bafana facing tournament hosts Egypt, who have won all their Group A games without conceding.

Here are all round of 16 clashes:

Morocco vs Benin
Uganda vs Senegal
Nigeria vs Cameroon
Egypt vs South Africa
Madagascar vs Congo DR
Algeria vs Guinea
Mali vs Ivory Coast
Ghana vs Tunisia
