See you in the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals, Tunisia!
The Eagles of Carthage booked their place in the knockout stages thanks to a 4-2 win over Zimbabwe, while the result meant The Warriors bowed out of the competition. Algeria were also knocked out of the tournament after their 2-2 draw with Senegal.

Happy 46th birthday to Julie Foudy! The midfielder was a trailblazer for the women’s game as a player, taking part in the first four editions of the FIFA Women’s World Cup with the USA, claiming the trophy in 1991 and 1999 and finishing third in 1995 and 2003. Foudy also appeared in three Olympic Women’s Football Tournaments, earning a gold medal at Atlanta 1996 and Athens 2004, as well as a silver medal at Sydney 2000.

#HappyBirthday, Rogerio Ceni! The @saopaulofc goalkeeper had a distinguished career (including winning both the FIFA #WorldCup and the FIFA Club World Cup), but he also had an eye for goal, too! Ceni holds Guinness World Record accolades for most goals scored by a goalkeeper, number of games played for the same club and amount of times as captain. Have a great day, Rogerio! #Parabéns #Brazil #Brasil #ClubWC @cbf_futebol #SPFC #Tricolor #legend @guinnessworldrecords #mito

Happy 28th birthday to Henrikh Mkhitaryan! The @manchesterunited midfielder is Armenia’s all-time top goalscorer. Could his scorpion kick against Sunderland become a contender for the FIFA Puskás Award?

Happy 36th birthday to Owen Hargreaves! The combative midfielder took part in two FIFA World Cups with @england. After graduating from @fcbayern’s youth academy, Hargreaves was promoted to the senior side, with whom he went on to secure four @bundesliga_en championships, three German Cups, a UEFA Champions League title and an Intercontinental Cup. A high-profile transfer to @manchesterunited followed, as did four English @premierleague titles and a further @uefachampionsleague crown.

Cameroon denied Guinea-Bissau what would have been an historic victory and came from behind to win their Group A encounter 2-1. Four-time champions Cameroon celebrated its first AFCON win since 2010. In the other match today, hosts Gabon & Burkina Faso had to settle for a point in a 1-1 draw.

Happy 50th birthday to Ivan Zamorano! A living legend of Chilean football, he helped his country to return to the FIFA World Cup stage at France 1998, where he and his team-mates reached the Round of 16. Two years later, the dynamic striker earned a bronze medal at the Men’s Olympic Football Tournament, at the culmination of which he found himself atop the competition’s scoring charts.

#OnThisDay on 1964, the "United Trinity" of George Best, Sir Bobby Charlton and Denis Law played for the first time together for Manchester United. The trio, now a famous statue outside Old Trafford, were the linchpin for United's successes during that era, including their 1968 European Cup triumph over @slbenfica at @wembleystadium. Between them, they scored 655 goals for the #RedDevils. #Legends #MUFC #OldTrafford

Happy 37th birthday to Nia Künzer! The mere mention of her name inevitably brings to mind the FIFA Women’s World Cup USA 2003 final and her extra-time golden goal against Sweden that sent football fans across Germany into raptures.

Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El Hadary stepped on the field for the injured Ahmed El-Shenawy in the 25th minute against Mali, setting the African Cup of Nations’ record for oldest ever player at the age of 44 years and two days.

This fan in Kampala will no doubt be proud of The Cranes despite their 1-0 defeat by Ghana. Uganda returned to the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since reaching the final in 1978. In the other match in Group D, Mali and Egypt played to a hard-fought goalless draw, which leaves the Black Stars with an early lead in the group.
