Sarpsborg 08 forward Ibrahima Koné has by far been Mali’s best player at the tournament as he has three goals to his name, having scored in all three group stage games against Tunisia, Gambia and Mauritania, respectively.

Although he didn’t play in the opening game, Alaves goalkeeper Jesús Owono has been the main reason behind Equatorial Guinea only conceding one goal in three games as he has kept a clean sheet in both of his appearances against Alergia and Sierra Leone, respectively.
