African Cup Of Nations
Ivory Coast 1 - 1 Mali (HIGHLIGHT) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: News Sports Mali Ivory Coast 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations football

Max Gradel struck late to earn Ivory Coast a draw with Mali and keep alive their hopes of reaching the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals.

Mali had looked to be heading for victory, thanks to a superb half-volley from Bakary Sako after seven minutes.

But the equaliser came on 86 minutes when Gradel slotted in from 12 yards.

Earlier, Ivory Coast were denied a penalty when Wilfried Bony appeared to be upended by Molla Wague, while Kolo Toure headed against the bar.

Those two first-half incidents summed up the match, as the Elephants were frustrated for long spells. And once again they needed to recover from a poor start as they fell behind after only seven minutes.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Mali launched a swift counter-attack and worked the ball out wide to Sambou Yatabare whose far-post cross was met brilliantly on the half-volley by Sako, his left foot sending the ball low into the opposite corner.

It wasn't until the 25th minute that the Elephants created a clear-cut chance in response. A cross from the left was headed back across goal by Bony but Doumbia's attempt at an acrobatic volley was mistimed and poorly directed.

Ivory Coast coach Herve Renard cut a furious figure on the touchline and his rage was further fuelled when Bony looked as though he was impeded by Molla Wague but the referee gave a corner.

They almost scored from set-piece but Kolo Toure's thumping header was superbly tipped onto the bar by goalkeeper Soumaila Diakite.

Despite their best efforts, fortune was not favouring the Ivorians and they were incensed when the referee awarded a free-kick in box, penalising Bertrand Bailly who had flicked the ball up to himself to head the ball back to his keeper.

Bakary Sako's Goal: Ivory Coast 0 - 1 Mali

Mali could not take advantage, with Sako firing the set-piece against the wall.

Opting for a front three of Max Gradel, Bony and Doumbia, Ivory Coast pushed forward in numbers after the break.

Yet the equaliser would not come. Bony headed wide from Gradel's dinked cross and then when Bony turned provider, his team-mates were unable to meet his inviting near-post flick-on.

From an unfortunate injury Mali took an opportunity to relieve pressure on their defence, taking about five minutes to substitute keeper Diakite for Germain Berthe. Inevitably the delay disrupted the rhythm of the game, both teams struggling to regain their composure.

Then with four minutes of normal time remaining, Serge Aurier, a threat throughout, played in Gradel and the substitute clipped a low shot beyond Berthe.

South Africa 1 - 1 Senegal (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Football sports South Africa Senegal (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Senegal took top spot in Africa Cup of Nations Group C after coming from behind to hold South Africa.

After a first half short on drama, it took only 62 seconds of the second period for Oupa Manyisa to open the scoring from eight yards out.
Senegal pushed for a leveller, with Sadio Mane having a goal disallowed for offside before Kara Mbodji headed home.

The Lions of Teranga are not through yet, while South Africa - bottom on one point - could still progress.

Ghana beat Algeria in the earlier game - meaning both those sides are now on three points.

Senegal would be through with a draw in Tuesday's group closer with Algeria, while even a win for South Africa against Ghana might not be enough.

Bafana Bafana will rue a second consecutive game in which they have thrown away a lead, having lost 3-1 to Algeria in their opening game.
They had most of the first-half chances, although Senegal had the best opportunity in injury-time when Mame Diouf put a free header wide from close range.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

The second half was a more entertaining affair, almost instantly. Just moments after the break, Manyisa guided Anele Ngcongca's cross home from inside the box.

But Senegal pushed for a leveller and Mane thought he had equalised when he stabbed the ball into the empty net after a Jackson Mabokgwane fumble but it was ruled out for offside.

But his side were back in the game - and in control of the group - when Papa Diop's free-kick from deep was met by Mbodji's powerful header after Mabokgwane came off his line.

From there, Senegal had arguably the best chances to win it, as Moussa Sow snatched at the ball from close range, Diouf headed another shot wide and Dame N'Doye forced a good save with a venomous effort.

Thabo Matlaba had a chance to win the game for South Africa in the final 10 minutes after a good team move but his shot was blocked and their fate now depends on other teams.

Ghana 1 - 0 Algeria (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 African Cup Of Nations Tags: Ghana Algeria Football Sports 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Lartink

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan's one goal in 92 minutes (4 minutes of extra time added) of the game to beat Algeria, and keep Ghana alive in the tournament; Gyan's one goal made Ghana to best fit in the tournament, which has had many drawn, and so far Ghana was not doing good after losing to Senegal 2 - 1.

Ghana 1 - 0 Algeria was the final score between some of Africa's best countries in the game. Ghana changed its starting lineup to put in Asamoah Gyan, who was sick from malaria.

"Algeria maybe the highest-ranked team at 2015 African Cup Of Nations tournament, but they don't look like a [happy] team at the moment. They've been outplayed by Ghana in this second half, but it's the Fennecs who will be happy with a draw, having won their first game. Three added minutes to endure."

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS: Asamoah Gyan's Glory Goal

As the game proceeds, Yacine Brahimi, who has been really disappointing today, gives away a free kick and is promptly hooked by Christian Gourcuff. Algeria bring on Foued Kadir of Real Betis in his place.

After frustration from Ghana's fans and coaches, Antonio Albertez stated that "Asamoah Gyan should retire after this tournament. He has played diabolical football today." But he and some angry fans soon saw a dramatic change in the game. "This game has a late twist! Ghana was undone by a late goal in their last match, but this time they are benefiting from one. A long ball is lumped forward from the pack by Wakaso Mubarak, Asamoah Gyan shows strength to get away from a lumbering Carl Medjani, and he pokes a good finish past Rais M'Bohli. The Black Stars are alive in this tournament, and this group is wide open," another fans added.

Ghana's A.Badu confronted by two Algeria's players.

"He's scored in each of his last six games for Ghana - enough to silence the calls for his retirement," a reporter embraced Ghana's Asamoah Gyan.

Fan response to AFCON 2015
‏"This has to be the most boring Afcon since Mali 2002. Too many drawn games so far. Very little drama."

Cape Verde 0 - 0 DR Congo (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Sports Football Cape Verde DR Congo HIGHLIGHTS 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Cape Verde and DR Congo played out a lacklustre goalless draw that leaves both sides needing to win their final Group B games to be sure of progress.

Calu wasted a clear first-half chance for the islanders when heading straight at goalkeeper Robert Kidiaba.

DR Congo struggled to create chances although Yannick Bolasie forced Vozinha into a full stretch in the first half.

Cape Verde had several late chances but Kidiaba blocked superbly from Varela, Gege and then substitute Heldon.

Zambia 1 - 2 Tunisia (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of nations Tags: Sports Football Zambia Tunisia HIGHLIGHTS 2015 Africa Cup Of nations

The match between Zambia and Tunisia was a tough match. But in the end the score was Zambia 1 - 2 Tunisia, as the champions of 2004 beat the champions of 2011.

Second goal in the 88 minutes of the game. Tunisia, the Carthage Eagles, may have nicked it here. Chikhaoui runs on to the cross from Msakni ahead of Mbola and heads a bullet header past Mweene, Zambia's goalkeeper.

Tunisia are unbeaten in their four previous Cup of Nations clashes with Zambia, drawing two and winning two, including a shock 4-2 semi-final win in 1996.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Zambia in their famous all green kit while Tunisia are in white with a red stripe. Both sides are likely to employ 4-3-3 formations. Zambia kick off from left to right.

Goal In the 59 minutes of the game: Zambia in their famous all green kit while Tunisia are in white with a red stripe. Both sides are likely to employ 4-3-3 formations. Zambia kick off from left to right.

Goal in the 69 minutes of the game: Zambia 1-1 Tunisia. Akaichi pokes home at the far post following a flicked corner and somehow it is 1-1.

But in the 81 minutes: PENALTY SHOUT. Mbola clips Mancer in the box but the referee waves play on, smiling. Did the Tunisia defender dive too much, even though there was contact?
