Equatorial Guinea hoping for a lasting legacy

Residents of the Africa Cup of Nations hosts are hoping to get more out of the tournament that just stadiums.

    Equatorial Guinea was given just two months notice to host the Africa Cup of Nations after Morocco's withdrawal.

    And the tournament has seen games played in some remote parts of the small country.

    But residents are hoping that more than just a new stadium will be left behind when the football ends.
