    Ghana produced a storming comeback and Algeria ratified their top ranking as both advanced to the African Nations Cup quarter-finals with victories in their last Group C matches.

    Ghana were a goal down at halftime but beat South Africa 2-1 in Mongomo with two late strikes while Algeria ended Senegal's hopes with a 2-0 triumph in Malabo.

    Both finished on six points, and will play in the last-eight in Malabo on Sunday, but Ghana top the group on the head-to-head result between the two.

    Senegal finished with four points while South Africa were bottom of the standings with one.
