LUBANGO, Angola, Jan 21 - Substitute Achille Webo set up two goals as Cameroon snatched a 2-2 draw against Tunisia to scrape into the African Nations Cup quarter-finals on Thursday.

Webo, who came on as a second-half replacement for Jean Makoun, provided Samuel Eto'o and Landry Nguemo with perfect back passes as Cameroon twice fought back to advance from Group D.

Zambia also progressed after beating Gabon 2-1.

Tunisia, eliminated after drawing their three games, had gone ahead in the first minute through Amine Chermiti and again in the 63rd when defender Aurelien Chedjou netted into his own goal.
