Afcon 2019: Ghana vs Tunisia on July 8 + full Round of 16 ties

Ghana will face Tunisia in the final game of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations last-16 stage on Monday July 8.

Kickoff is 19:00 GMT.

The Black Stars are returning to the city of Ismailia to take on the Carthage Eagles who managed to pick the second automatic qualifying slot by drawing all their matches in Group E.

Ghana themselves endured a slow start to the competition having had to play two frustrating drawn games with Benin and Cameroon before dispatching Guinea-Bissau 2-0 to top Group F on Tuesday.

The last-16 fixtures will be played over four days with one of the tournament favourites, Morocco kicking off the round at Al Salam Stadium with Benin at 16:00 GMT on Thursday, July 5.

Uganda and Senegal face off same day at 19:00 GMT but at the Cairo International Stadium.

July 6 serves up what could be termed the pick of the round as former champions Nigeria and Cameroon square off in Alexandria. The two have won the title 8 times between them.

Hosts Egypt follow up same night against South Africa who sneaked to this stage as one of the best third-placed teams at the Cairo International Stadium.

Surprise Group B winners Madagascar open the July 7 batch of games with DR Congo in Alexandria while Algeria also take on Guinea in the second match of the day at the June 30 Stadium.

First comes a West African Francophone derby between Mali and Ivory Coast on the final day of the Round of 16 in Suez. It will then be wrapped up by the Ghana vs Tunisia battle later in the night in Ismailia.


The survivors of the Round of 16 will make it through to the quarterfinals scheduled for July 10 and 11.

Whoever wins between Uganda and Senegal will face the winner of the clash between Morocco and Benin. Nigeria or Cameroon would be measured in quarters against Egypt or South Africa for the July 10 last-8 fixtures.

Winner between Madagascar and DR Congo awaits either Ghana or Tunisia whereas the Mali and Ivory Coast is to produce opposition for the clash between Algeria and Guinea.
