With a minute and 46 seconds left on the clock, Tale fired home from a tight angle to put the Sand Eagles ahead till the end.

With the 4-3 win, Eagles finished with six points level with Egypt in Group A; but in spite of the Pharaohs having a healthier goal advantage after defeating Cote D’Ivoire 4-2, the Eagles finished in second place on head-to-head rule, having earlier beaten Egypt 3-2 in match-day 1.
