However, an own-goal from Omar Ngando eight minutes from time left Gabon searching for another goal.

Gabon could not deliver in spite of welcoming back Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

With the result, Burundi finished second in Group C, behind group leaders Mali who have already qualified for the competition.

On third place is Gabon, the 2017 Nations Cup hosts.

Burundi – who are 138th in the FIFA rankings – will vie for the crown in Egypt in June when the competition starts.
