Mauritania qualified to Total Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon 2021 for the second time in its history, making consecutive appearances after their debut in Egypt 2019.
The Mourabitounes made sure of qualification thanks to an away 1-0 victory over Central African Republic in Bangui on Monday afternoon.
Mauritania scored in the opening half injury time through Aboubacar Kamara, a goal they defended well to raise their Group E tally to 9 points, four more than third place Burundi who play Morocco later on the day in Rabat.
Knowing a win will take them automatically to the finals, Mauritania played on attacking note from the start.
However, they had to wait till the brink of halftime to score what proved to be the game’s lone goal.
Ismail Diakité found for Kamara who delivered to give his side a cheerful moment they cherished till the final whistle.
