The referee has blown his whistle to signal the end of this match. Mali claim all three points and Guinea are distraught after giving their all but failing to at least claim a deserved draw. Mali move level on points with group favourites Ghana who beat Botswana earlier in the day.
Mahamadou N'Diaye goes into the book for a rash challenge on Ibrahima Traore.
Samba Diakite is yellow carded for an innocuous looking challenge on Pascal Feindouno.
Garra Dembele is on for Cheick Diabate for Mali.
Ousmane Barry replaces Ismaël Bangoura for Guinea.
An exciting first half has come to an end and Mali will be satisfied to go into the break one goal to the good. But Guinea are by no means out of this one and certainly look dangerous on attack.
Bakaye Traore breaks the deadlock and nets Mali's first goal of this tournament.
First booking of the match to Guinea's Mamadou Bah.
