Reflecting on his side’s start to the tournament, Gabon’s captain Aubameyang said:

"I won't say serene, but it certainly feels good to start the competition with a victory.

"After that, you shouldn't think that you won the Cup of Nations either.

"We are going to play a very tough opponent who want to win the game, so we will have to be serious as we were in the first game and I know that we will have our chances.

"I was already very happy that the guys did the job in the first game, we are all proud of them. Now it's up to me to level up and bring everything I can to the group."
