It's getting a bit scrabby now with Aymen Abdennour picking up Tunisia's third booking of the match, as the Eagles make their third change heading into the last few minutes, Khalifa earning a break to be replaced by Oussama Darragi.
Moise Brou Apanga receives a card for a trailing leg in the tackle as the Gabonse just need to keep their wits and heads about them at this late stage of the game.
GOAL! GABON! AUBAMEYANG! There's just no stopping the Panthers hitman from finding the back of the net, the tournament's joint top-goalscorer firing his side into the lead with a sharp right-footed finish at the end of a quick-fire breakout and pass forward from the just behind the halfway line.
Anis Boussaidi goes into the referee's book for a late tackle as the Tunisians have suddenly been called into action quite frequently to quell several Gabonese attacks. Moments earlier the Panthers had another positive chance on goal, Meye sharp cross from the right allowing Andre Biyogo Poko to try and get his head behind it with venom, a las, to no avail.
The Panthers defence is battling to contain the runs from the flanks by Msakni, the Eagles winger's last run taking his marker far out to the left before cutting a great ball into the box from an acute angle. Unfortunately, nothing came of the movement as Khalil Chemmam receives the first booking of the game for a late challenge on Aubameyang who tries to break from the back.
