Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not feature at the Africa Cup of Nations this year after Gabon failed to qualify for the tournament.
Gabon needed to win against Burundi to qualify but they came up short, only managing a 1-1 draw.
The result means that Burundi will play in their first ever AFCON while Aubameyang and Gabon will miss the event in Egypt.
Burundi took the lead in the 77th minute through Cedric Amissi but their lead lasted just five minutes.
Omar Ngando put through his own net to give Gabon hope but they were unable to find the second goal that they required.

- Arsenal will send Denis Suarez back

So Burundi will finish second in Group C behind Mali.
While they will be celebrating, Gabon will be ruing yet another poor showing in international competition.
Aubameyang's awful late free-kick
Aubameyang was disappointing too, managing just one goal in qualifying.
His campaign can perhaps be summed up by his late free-kick in Saturday’s draw.
Gabon won a free-kick in injury time more than 30 yards from goal and packed Burundi’s box.
But Aubameyang wanted glory himself, attempting a shot.
The outcome? Well, it was awful.
Gabon’s misery in international competition continues, then.
The nation have only managed group stage finishes in the previous two AFCON’s and they also missed out on the 2018 World Cup.
They will have to watch the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations from home, which certainly won’t make for an enjoyable experience.
This year’s tournament makes history as the first to be held in June, instead of the traditional January/February period.
It’s also the biggest version of the tournament; 24 nations will compete, marking the first time the AFCON has featured more than 16 teams.
Egypt will host the tournament after Cameroon were stripped of the privilege due to serious delays with its preparations as well as security concerns.
