Madagascar have qualified for the African Cup of Nations finals for the first time ever in their history.
The side, often associated with the films of the same name, will be at Afcon 2019 after 1-0 win against Equatorial Guinea in Vontovorona on Tuesday night secured their lead at the top of Group A.
These were the best jokes as Madagascar qualify for the African Cup of Nations:
Njiva Rakotoharimalala has put Madagascar on the brink of qualifying for the first AFCON in their history.
(A name that will test AFCON commentators and twitter character limits).

Scorer for Madagascar is Njiva Rakotoharimalala.
There is also Zotsara Randriambololona and defender Pascal Razakanantenaina as well as Stéphan Raheriharimanana.
I think Ahmad Ahmad is the only man with a simple name in Madagascar
