Tunisia 1 - 2 Equatorial Guinea (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Football Sports Tunisia Equatorial Guinea (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Equatorial Guinea beat Tunisia in controversial circumstances to reach the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals.

Ahmed Akaichi looked to have put Tunisia into the last four when he turned in Hamza Mathlouthi's cross.

The hosts, ranked 96 places below their opponents, sent it to extra time when Javier Balboa netted an injury-time penalty after Ali Maaloul was harshly ruled to have fouled Ivan Bolado.

And Balboa scored the winner with a fantastic free-kick from 25 yards.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Equatorial Guinea will face Ghana or Guinea in their first Cup of Nations semi-final on Thursday.

The game ended with ugly scenes as both sets of officials and players clashed in the 120th minute, with security getting involved, and at the final whistle some Equatorial Guinea fans ran onto the pitch to celebrate a famous win.

Bottles were thrown at Tunisia players, with one Carthage Eagles player throwing one back.

The minnows, ranked 118th in the world, only entered the tournament in November when they replaced Morocco as hosts because of the Ebola crisis.

They had been eliminated from qualifying after fielding an ineligible player, only hired coach Esteban Becker 11 days before the tournament and gave five players debuts in a pre-tournament friendly.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

However they qualified from Group A thanks to victory over Gabon in their final game to reach their second quarter-final. They lost the first - in the 2012 event they co-hosted - to Ivory Coast.

Tunisia, meanwhile, topped a group with DR Congo, Cape Verde and Zambia and had good reason to enter the game in confident mood.

It was a game of few chances, with Akaichi having a shot touched over by Felipe Ovono before he opened the scoring.
Emilio Nsue was denied a leveller with eight minutes left by Tunisia keeper Aymen Mathlouthi, setting up the incredible late drama.

Bolado dribbled into the area and appeared to stand on the edge of Maaloul's foot before falling to the floor. The referee awarded a penalty in front of a partisan home crowd to a furious reaction from the Tunisian bench.

Some fans shone lasers in the eyes of Tunisia keeper Mathlouthi, who went the wrong way as Balboa rolled it into the net.
In extra time, the momentum was with Equatorial Guinea and Balboa curled home a wonderful free-kick in the first period.

Tunisia created few chances to force penalties before the match ended on a sour note with chaos in the Bata Stadium.

Congo 2 - 4 DR Congo (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Football Sports Congo DR Congo (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup OF Nations

DR Congo fought back from two goals down to beat neighbours Congo and reach the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals. Ferebory Dore volleyed Congo in front and Thievy Bifouma drove in from a rebound to make it 2-0 either side of DR Congo efforts that hit the bar.

In a 16-minute spell DR Congo's Dieumerci Mbokani slotted in to give them hope, Jeremy Bokila equalised and Joel Kimuaki headed a third.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Mbokani rounded off the win, stroking home after a counter-attack.

It capped a remarkable fightback from DR Congo who looked to be heading out of the competition when they were two goals down just after the hour mark.

A tepid first half, in which Congo were unable to assert themselves at all, ended goalless and there was no sign of what was to follow.

DR Congo had a strong shout for a penalty immediately after the break and then Bokila smashed a shot against the bar from 12 yards.

Only four minutes later Congo struck the first blow when Dore ghosted in at the far post to volley in from a long, diagonal free-kick into the box.

WATCH VIDEO

DR Congo almost equalised shortly after when Cedric Makiadi's free-kick crashed against the bar. But instead they conceded again after Jean Kasusula passed the ball out of defence straight to Dore whose shot was blocked by Kidiaba into the path of Bifouma and his effort beat the defenders on the line.

However, DR Congo refused to cave in and three minutes later they finally got the goal they had been threatening, Yannick Bolasie beat two men for pace and cut the ball back from the byeline for an unmarked Mbokani to slot home.

A minute later Bokila somehow missed the target after a knockdown from the excellent Mbokani, and then Dore was inches away from making it 3-1 to Congo as the game swung from end to end.

Back came DR Congo and Bokila finally made up for his earlier wastefulness when he fired a left-foot shot into the top corner and levelled the score.

With DR Congo now in the ascendancy they used their momentum to press Congo back and won a free-kick on the left flank. Cedric Mabwati swung in the set-piece and substitute Kimuaki glanced a header into the corner to put his side in front.

A magnificent turnaround was capped when substitute Neeskens Kebano found Mbokani, who followed up after his initial effort was saved to slot home his second and his side's fourth.

Cameroon 0 - 1 Ivory Coast (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Sports Football Ivory Coast Cameroon (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Ivory Coast beat Cameroon to earn a place in the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals as Group D winners.

Max Gradel scored the goal that gave the Elephants the only victory in the six matches in the group, and saved them from having to draw lots.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

He smashed in a drive from 20 yards to set up a last eight match with Group C runners-up Algeria on Sunday.

Edgar Salli missed two good chances to equalise, hesitating when clean through and also blazing over from in the box.

Those glaring misses left Cameroon bottom of the group - their worst finish at a Nations Cup finals - and it also means lots will need to be drawn on Thursday to decide whether Mali or Guinea, who played out the fifth 1-1 stalemate of Group D, take the other quarter-final place.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Ivory Coast will be relieved to have avoided that lottery, having gone out in 1988 by that method, as they did just enough to earn the win that guaranteed them passage to the knock-out stages for the sixth successive time.

Senegal 0 - 2 Algeria (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Football Sports Senegal Algeria (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Algeria reached the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals as Group C runners-up after beating Senegal.

Sofiane Feghouli missed a great early chance when his poor touch allowed Bouna Coundoul to save at his feet.

Leicester's Riyad Mahrez struck the opener when played in by a free-kick and Tottenham's Nabil Bentaleb drove in from 18 yards after the break.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Senegal were going through until Ghana's winner against South Africa put the Black Stars through instead.

It was a deserved victory for Algeria, who produced the more fluid football throughout despite not quite playing at their best.

Senegal will rue a shocking defensive lapse that gifted Algeria their opener and meant the Teranga Lions were always chasing the game.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

The only negative for Algeria is an injury to key man Yacine Brahimi, who was forced off after 72 minutes - they will be hopeful the midfielder will be fit for Sunday's quarter-final against the winners of Group D.

South Africa 1 - 2 Ghana (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Football Sports South Africa Ghana (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Andre Ayew scored a late goal to put Ghana into the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals as Group C winners.

Ayew bravely headed home Baba Rahman's left-wing cross after his side had earlier looked like being eliminated.

Mandla Masango had given South Africa the lead with possibly the goal of the tournament when he scored a spectacular volley from 25 yards.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Ghana piled on the pressure after the break and substitute John Boye drove home an equaliser before Ayew struck.

With 17 minutes remaining, Ghana were on the way home as they trailed 1-0 but Boye's equaliser gave them hope and then Ayew's strike confirmed they would finish ahead of Algeria, who qualified with them after beating Senegal 2-0, on head-to-head record.

Ghana had never scored against South Africa in an Africa Cup of Nations match but they started as though they were determined to end that record.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Jonathan Mensah headed just wide in the fifth minute and 60 seconds later, Jordan Ayew's effort was cleared off the line by Eric Mathoho.

Masango gave South Africa a 17th-minute lead in stunning fashion when a defensive header fell to him outside the penalty area and he produced an unstoppable shot.
