Soccer-Nations Cup hosts Gabon in peril after second draw

LIBREVILLE, Jan 18 (Reuters) - Hosts Gabon's continued participation in the African Nations Cup was in serious doubt after they were held 1-1 by Burkina Faso on Wednesday, their second draw in Group A.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang again scored for his country but they had to come from behind to equalise and missed two good late chances to win the game.

Gabon's poor start was also reflected in a far from full stadium in the country's capital for the key game as sceptical supporters stayed away.
