AFCON 2019: Iwobi scores, Elneny eliminated

We have two players in action at this year's Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, with the competition now in the knockout stages.

Scroll down to find out how they got on in their latest fixtures:
 
Alex Iwobi scored the winning goal as Nigeria recorded a 3-2 victory over Cameroon in their last-16 clash in Alexandria.
 
Odion Ighalo broke the deadlock after just 19 minutes after being teed up by Kenneth Omeruo. However, Cameroon then turned the game on its head with strikes from Stephane Behoken and Clinton Njie sending the Indomitable Lions in leading at the interval.
 
Ighalo found the net once again shortly after the hour mark to draw the scores level, before turning provider for Iwobi's winner in the 66th minute. An inch-perfect through ball set our attacker through on goal, with Iwobi remaining calm to slot in a first-time finish to secure Nigeria's progression.
 
Meanwhile, Mohamed Elneny was eliminated from the tournament after seeing his Egypt side fall to a shock 1-0 defeat to South Africa in Cairo. With the scores still level with just five minutes remaining, Thembinkosi Lorch stunned the home crowd with a late strike to send Bafana Bafana through at the Pharaohs' expense.
