The quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations started with Senegal meeting Benin in Cairo, Egypt

Senegal beat Benin 1-0 at 30 June Stadium on Wednesday evening, booking a place in the semi-final against the winner from Tunisia and Madagascar.

Benin had upset one of the tournament favourites, Morocco, on penalties in the Round of 16 but African supporters expected Senegal to get the job done.

The goal was made in Merseyside by Liverpool and Everton's star players.
