Bloemfontein - A late goal from Abdelrahman Fetori helped Libya reach the quarter-finals as they played to a 2-2 draw against Congo at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday night, while Ghana beat Ethiopia in the night's other match in Bloemfontein.

It was the Red Devils who fired the first shot in anger in the 7th minute when Bersyl Obassi had a view of goal, but his effort drifted wide of the target.

The result saw Libya finishing in second place with five points, while Congo and Ethiopia complete the group with four and zero points, respectively.

Meanwhile, a dubious 76th minute penalty gave Ghana a 1-0 win over Ethiopia as they advanced to the knock-out stages as group winners.

Ethiopian midfielder Salahdin Hussen was judged to have brought down Seidu Bansey on the edge of the box, although a replay showed minimal contact before the striker tumbled to the ground.

But Kwabena Adusei made no mistake from the penalty box, sending the keeper the wrong way and sending Ghana into the quarter finals.
