The Comoros Islands and Gambia have qualified for the African Cup of Nations for the first time, securing places at next January’s finals in Cameroon after their penultimat­e group games this week. A goalless home draw against Togo maintained the Comoros’ unbeaten record in qualifying and guaranteed a top-two finish in Group G in a fairy-tale achievemen­t for the small island nation. Assan Ceesay scored around the hour for Gambia as they beat Angola 1-0 at home and they will be joined in the finals from Group D by Gabon.
