  • End of 2nd Half
90'+4 

FULL TIME: Angola are out of the tournament after losing 1-0 courtesy of Haidara's stunning strike. Mali are through to face Ivory Coast, as are Tunisia who drew 0-0 with Mauritania. And South Africa are also through to the last 16. Thanks for following the game with us..

90'+3

Bastos is booked for a push.

90'+2 

Keeper Cabaca with a diving header from outside the box to deal with a long ball, lovely stuff.

90' 

There will be 3 added minutes.

89' 

CLOSE! Traore's low shot is deflected wide for a corner. The set piece is a good one, Marega chests it down well but blazes it over from a tight angle, he should have found the target from there.

87' 

Angola are showing plenty of fight but they lack the quality up front.

85' 

It remains Tunisia 0-0 Mauritania in the other game folks.

83' 

CLOSE! Mali have a corner from the right. Marega gets ahead of Koulibaly and heads it over the bar.

80' 

Herenilson is booked for a late challenge and can have few complaints.

- 

This stunning strike still separates the sides.

78' 

GOOD SAVE: The ball is laid off by Chiek for Traore whose low bending shot from around 20 yards is saved by Cabaca.

77' 

South Africa will be nervously watching this in their hotel. They will go through as the best 3rd place side if Angola fail to get a point.

76' 

CHANCE! Sub Cheick tries a long-range effort which flies wide. 14 minutes left..

75' 

Mali have a corner after Paiza blocks a cross. Its headed clear to Wague whose low drive from distance is blocked.

73'

Chiek is on for the goal scorer, Haidara.

71' 

It remains Tunisia 0-0 Mauritania so Angola know they only need one goal to progress.

69'

Diarra is booked for apparently time wasting.

68' 

Show blazes a shot wide from distance, the sub seems keen to impress.

66' 

The Angolans are looking dangerous down the right through Djalma but Mali are holding firm.

- 
62' 

CLOSE! Dala cuts inside and fires in a low shot which is deflected for a corner, he looked to have his shirt tugged. From the corner, Mali deal with the danger.

61' 

Eduardo has space down the left but his delivery is over-hit, the Angolans have been let down by their crossing. They have around 30 minutes to salvage something.

59' 

This has been a far more entertaining affair despite both sides only needing a point, compared to the Benin Cameroon game earlier.

58' 

Mali make their first change and Doumbia, who has faded, makes way for Koita.

57' 

If Mali win the group they could have a clash with the Ivory Coast in the last 16.

55' 

Good run from Paizo who twists into the box and fires in a cross, there are half-hearted appeals for hand ball but the referee waves play on.

54' 

Tunisia are still 0-0 with Mauritania and could go through with three draws.

52' 

Angola are making a double change. Eduardo is on for Mateus.

50' 

CLOSE! Mali have a free-kick around 30 yards out in a central position. Traore's effort is a decent one and goes narrowly over.

48' 

The corner is eventually taken, its partially cleared and Sacko's volley is high, wide and not particularly handsome.

47' 

Mali have begun well. They win a corner from the left after Haidar'a cross is blocked by the stomach of Gaspar who needs treatment.

  • 2nd Half
45'

KICK OFF: The second half is underway. It is Tunisia 0-0 Mauritania, so the north Africans are set to go through to face Ghana in the last 16 if it stays the same.

  • End of 1st Half
45'

HALF TIME: A makeshift Mali side rode their luck early on to take the lead courtesy of Haidara's stunning strike from distance. As it stands, Mali top the group and Angola are heading home.

45' 

Paizo gives the ball away, Traore's cross is a good one for Koulibaly who stops his run for some reason and the ball goes out.

- 

Lovely build up play before Haidara unleashed from distance.

43' 

Goodness me. Bastos plays it back to the keeper who nearly makes a meal of the clearance but fortunately slices it to the full-back.

42' 

Geralda has the ball on the edge of the box, he cuts inside and blazes his effort well over when he had Gaspar making an overlapping run.

40' 

Paizo is in agony near the touchline after Traore's block. He looks to be okay to continue.

- 
38' 

That goal means Mali and Tunisia are going through from Group E and South Africa also making it through.

37'

GOAL FOR MALI! Haidara with a stunning strike from around 25 yards, the keeper barely moved as it dipped in.

35' 

Angola deserve to be ahead on the balance of play but Mali are gradually coming into the game more as we approach half time.

33' 

It remains 0-0 in the Tunisia Mauritania game, so as it stands Mali and Angola will go through but there is penalty of time left.

31' 

SO CLOSE! Coulibaly's ambitious effort comes off Bastos for a corner.

And from the corner, the towering Coulibaly's diving header goes narrowly wide.

30' 

Gaspar needs be careful, he is penalised for a push in the back to conede a free-kick on the halfway line.

28'

Gaspar is booked for a late challenge and that means he will miss the last 16 should they qualify.

- 
25' 

CLOSE! Djalma's volley from around 15 yards trickles wide after Geraldo's deflected cross. Mali were left exposed at the back again by the full-backs bombing forward.

23' 

Mali were involved in a memorable 4-4 draw with Angola in this tournament in 2010 having trailled 4-0 with 11 minutes left in the Kanoute era. More of that today please..

22' 

Angola have a free-kick from around 25 yards after Paizo is tripped by Traore. Djalma's effort is straight into the wall though.

- 
18' 

GOOD SAVE! Another great stop from Cabaca to keep out defender Wague's low shot from arond 20 yards.

17' 

GOOD SAVE! Coulibaly runs onto a keeper's clearance, he cuts it back to Traore whose curling low shot is parried.

15' 

Mali are improving but Angola, led by the Lazio defender Bastos, are defending well, particularly on the flanks.

13' 

Mali have not been fluent perhaps due to the string of chances, their best opportunity has been a half chance from Doumbia from distance.

- 

Ghana fans will be watching closely as they could face one of these teams in the knockout stage.

10' 

Doumbia's cross is deflected into the path of Haidara in the box but the ball is tangled in his feet and he cannot get a shot away.

8' 

Mali could face Ivory Coast, Ghana or hosts Egypt in the next round so a tough task if they finish first, second or third.

7' 

In the other game it is Tunisia 0-0 Mauritania with the latter making the better start.

6' 

CLOSE! Angola break again the left, Mateus keeps his balance in the box and slices his shot wide via a deflection. From the corner, its cleared and Geraldo's long-ranger is saved. Good start from the Angolans.

4' 

WHAT A MISS! Mali give the ball away in their half, its played through to Dala whose tame shot is comfortably saved. He should have scored!

2' 

Mali jave a free-kick from the right which is cleared. Its crossed back in but Traore is penalised for a shove and its a free-kick to Angola.

1' 

Angola, who only need a point to make the last 16, look to be playing on the counter attack.

20:00
