They garnered four points in two games but had a superior goal difference over second placed Burundi who also had the same points.

It should be noted that Burundi and South Sudan shared spoils in a three all draw and the former defeated Somalia 2-0.

This therefore means, South Sudan end the group stage with one more goal but both qualify for the quarterfinal stage.

The duo joins Eritrea, Sudan and Uganda from group A plus Tanzania and Kenya that have already sealed their slots.

The final slot is up for grabs between Zanzibar and Ethiopia who play Tanzania and Kenya respectively on Thursday.

Zanzibar have three points after defeating Ethiopia while the latter need at least to win against Kenya to stand any chance.
