Gabon'sĀ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang walks off after a 0-0 draw with Cameroon saw his team eliminated from the Africa Nations Cup.

Hosts Gabon were knocked out of the African Nations Cup after a 0-0 draw with Cameroon.

Hugo Broos' Cameroon qualified from Group A following the stalemate.

Gabon only had themselves to blame after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's awful early miss in Libreville while Denis Bouanga hit the post in stoppage time.

The hosts drew all three games to finish third in the group.

Burkina Faso advanced to the quarterfinals as Group A winners following a 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau, who are eliminated from the tournament.

The 2013 runners-up were guaranteed a place in the knockout phase if they came away from the Stade de Franceville with a victory, which they secured thanks to an own goal from Rudinilson Silva and a Bertrand Traore strike.
