Morocco topped Group C with seven points, followed by Gabon on five, who also advance to the second round. Comoros have an outside chance of being among the best third-placed finishers, though their minus two goal-difference will likely count against them.
Ghana finished bottom of Group C as they crashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations with a shock 3-2 defeat to Comoros despite threatening a thrilling comeback.
El Fardou Ben Nabouhane scored Comoris’ first ever AFCON goal after just four minutes, before Andre Ayew was unfortunate to be shown a red card for a challenge on the goalkeeper.
That left Ghana with it all to do, and it got worse for the Black Stars when Ahmed Mogni doubled the lead after an hour. Richmond Boakye got one back for his side, before Alexander Djiku equalised to give Ghana real hope.
But Mogni grabbed his second on the break as Comoros condemned Ghana to their first group-stage exit at the tournament since 2006.

Thomas Partey will soon be on his way back to north London to join up against with Arsenal.
With the Gunners having their match against Tottenham postponed last weekend, the midfielder could return without missing a single Premier League match.
For now though, Partey’s focus will be on a massively disappointing AFCON exit.
The last time Ghana were knocked out in the group stages? 2006.
They at least one a match that year, but finished third in the group with three points.
It’s no wins and just a single point this time. Painful exit for the Black Stars.
It finished level between Morocco and Gabon in the over match, a 2-2 draw.
That means Morocco go through as group winners with seven points, Gabon as runners-up with five. Comoros have three points and will have to wait and see if that is enough to earn them a spot as one of the best third-placed teams.
For Ghana though, they’re heading home.
GHANA ARE OUT!
Comoros have an incredible 3-2 victory. They hadn’t scored an AFCON goal before tonight... they have three now!
Ghana finish bottom of the group and crash out of the group stages. Andre Ayew’s red card a huge turning point.
Black Stars threatened a late comeback, but they couldn’t quite pull it off. Brilliant match.
