Comoros are taking part in their first ever Africa Cup of Nations, Afcon at the 33rd edition in Cameroon.
After two Group E loses to Morocco and Gabon, the Islanders pulled one of the greatest shocks of the tournament – beating favorites Ghana 2-3.
Ghana, four-time African champions, were effectively bundled out of the championship at the groups, a first in seven outings.
The win was a huge milestone in the meteoric rise of the The coelacanths and was wildly celebrated in the streets of the capital Moroni.
