Here is a summary of the latest sports news from Africa:
The World Cup is in full swing, and African teams are making their mark. Senegal and Morocco have both advanced to the knockout stage, and Ghana and Cameroon are still in the hunt.
Senegal defeated Ecuador 2-1 in their final group stage match to secure second place. The Lions of Teranga will now face England in the round of 16.
Morocco finished top of Group F after drawing with Croatia 0-0 in their final match. The Atlas Lions will now face Spain in the round of 16.
Ghana and Cameroon both lost their final group stage matches, but they still have a chance to advance to the knockout stage if they finish third in their groups.
