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.

Guinea 1 - 1 Mali (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Guinea Mali Sports Football (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Lots will decide whether Guinea or Mali reach the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals after a draw in Mongomo.

Modibo Maiga's header from Abdoulay Diaby's cross in the second half left Mali and Guinea with identical records, having drawn each of their games 1-1.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

The drawing of lots has been postponed until Thursday, having originally been pencilled in for Wednesday evening.

Guinea had taken the lead when Kevin Constant coolly dinked home a penalty given for handball by Salif Coulibaly.

Mali should have levelled immediately but Seydou Keita's penalty was saved, after Baissama Sankoh was penalised for handball.

However, neither side was able to find a winning goal on an uneven pitch.

How will they draw lots?

The all-important draw will now happen in the Confederation of African Football (Caf) hotel in Malobo at 15:00 GMT, during a meeting of the competition's organising committee.

The names of the two teams will be placed into two balls, before an official is invited to pick one ball - inside which will be the name of the team that has qualified for the quarter finals as group runners-up and will face Ghana on Sunday afternoon.

The last time lots were drawn to decide a team's qualification in this tournament was in 1988 when Algeria profited at Ivory Coast's expense.

Ivory Coast finished top of Group D after beating Cameroon 1-0 - the only match in the group not to finish in a 1-1 draw.

Indeed, a 1-1 draw between the Elephants and Cameroon would have left all four teams having to draw lots.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Lots have been drawn before
In a 1954 World Cup qualifying match in Rome, Turkey and Spain were tied after 90 minutes. At that point, a 14-year-old boy, the son of a stadium employee, was summoned to draw lots from a trophy, sending Turkey to compete at the tournament in Switzerland while Spain were sent home. Some reports suggest balls were drawn, others say it was a slip of paper.

In the 1988 Africa Cup of Nations, Algeria profited at the expense of Ivory Coast after the drawing of lots.

At the 1990 World Cup in Italy, the Netherlands and Ireland were tied for second place in their group. Straight after the match, Sepp Blatter, then second-in-command at Fifa, conducted a drawing of lots ceremony live on TV in Rome. Both teams were guaranteed qualification for round two but an attendant drew a ball from two bowls to determine their ranking, and thus their second-round opponent.

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.

Cape Verde 0 - 0 Zambia (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: football sports (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Cape Verde and Zambia both bowed out of the African Cup of Nations after a game which at one point looked as though it would stop because of torrential rain.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Persistent showers fell through the first half and the rain became extremely heavy during half-time and in the early stages of the second half.

Puddles appeared on the pitch but play continued and the rain finally stopped.

Zambia's Evans Kangwa missed a great chance late on while Antonio Varela earlier headed over at the other end.

Cape Verde missed out on qualifying on goals scored after only finding the net once in three matches, with a penalty, compared to DR Congo's two strikes.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

The weather will be the main talking point in a match from which either side could have qualified for the quarter-finals.

Tunisia's first-half goal against DR Congo left Cape Verde, who only needed a draw to go through, in pole position but the equaliser in that match meant that both teams progressed.

Zambia, winners in 2012, needed a victory to progress and Rainford Kalaba came close to putting his side ahead in the 24th minute when he cut inside and hit a shot which deflected past the post.
