The Eagles of Mali have been booted out of the 2022 CAF Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) tournament in Algeria by the Lions of Chinguetti from Mauritania.
The Mauritania side recorded a deserved win over the Featherless of Mali in their group D clash on Tuesday evening to reach the last eight.
Both teams failed to find the back of the net in the first 45 minutes of the match despite both teams creating good openings throughout the first half.
Mamadou Sy Ibrahima scored the only goal of the match to put the minnows in the lead on the 54th minute mark of the highly contested game.
The victory ensured a quarter-final spot for the Lions of Chinguetti who will come up against Senegal on Friday night.
