Senegal advanced to the quarterfinals of the Africa Cup of Nations following a 2-0 win over Cape Verde, who had two of their players sent off.

Patrick Andrade received his marching orders in the 21st minute and Vozinha was shown a straight red in the 57th minute after VAR review for a last man foul with the match still goalless.
