match dates you have posted are wrong in all group threads...

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Zambia and DR Congo play to a 1:1 draw, Zambia scored in the opening minutes but DR Congo had more of the chances. Nice play by DR Congo to set up the Bolasie equalizer. Zambia weren't all that impressive tbh

Watched the highlights of the game (don't seem to be showing the games live, this time) Congo should have beaten Zambia.

Tunisia were disappointing, Cape Verde could have won the game if they didn't waste so many chances.

Zambia 0-0 Tunisia at half time but the Zambians were much better. Tunisia is indeed terrible to watch.

Tunisia pretty much stole the three points, but Zambia have only themselves to blame for their awful finishing. To be fair though, Tunisia did create more chances once they went down and maybe should have had a penalty, but Mayuka's miss was criminal and he got injured in the process

First half almost over and Cape Verde has been the best. Hopefully Heldon will come in in the second half to solve this.

Well, Heldon came in and he was involved in the two only goal chances of this very dull second half but that was not enough to break this 0-0. Still, if both these teams win their last match they'll both go through.

All the groups look competitive at least, with everyone still with a chance of qualification going into the last group game so far.

Can see Tunisia grinding out a draw, leaving the winners of the other game to follow them through.

Tunisia get their deserved lead, on pace to top the group. Zambia-Cape Verde really hasn't got going yet but at the moment it's Zambia who need to win
