EBIBEYIN, Equatorial Guine: Yassine Chikhaoui's glancing header three minutes from time secured Tunisia a 2-1 win over Zambia in their African Nations Cup Group B match at Estadio de Ebebiyin on Thursday.

It gives Tunisia four points and a good chance to advance while Zambia, who were tournament winners in 2012, are in deep peril but have only themselves to blame after missing a host of chances.

Emmanuel Mayuka, who had two good first half opportunities, broke the deadlock for Zambia on the hour with a rasping shot but Tunisia equalised 10 minutes later through Ahmed Akaichi before their captain secured the victory.
