Live Commentary

Last Updated at 6:35 pm, January 26th 2012

  1. It ends two apiece. Be sure to catch Ivory Coast's clash with Burkina Faso in an hour's time, till then good bye!

  2. 90+4

    Sudan's Balla Gabir Kortkaila is booked.

  3. 89

    At the other end, Manucho tries his luck with a speculative lob from distance but his effort is narrowly off target with El Hadi backtracking.

  4. 87

    Sudan are dominating in the final stages here as they apply pressure on the Angolan box. One gets the sense this game could still yet deliver a late twist.

  5. 83

    Angolan sub as Joao Manucho Barros replaces Djalma.

  6. 79

    Sudan break on the counter, three versus three, but Fernandes saves at his near post to snuff out the danger. The Falcons of Jediane are playing with greater confidence now. That equaliser has certainly galvanised them.

  7. 74

    Sudan goal! Basheer gets his second as he pounces on a defensive error in the box to fire home from close range!

  8. 73

    Angolan sub as Jose Vunguidica replaces the injured Rafael, who looks to have hurt his shoulder.

  9. 71

    Angolan keeper Fernandes is booking for time-wasting.

  10. 66

    Nazar receives some medical attention after coming off second best in a gritty exchange. He's limping slightly but looks to be alright.

  11. 60

    Angola's Rafael is booked. Play has been restricted largely in the midfield trenches of late with either side lacking that telling touch in the final third.

  12. 50

    Manucho makes no mistake as he confidently places his kick into the bottom left corner!

  13. 49

    Djalma is brought down by Hamid Nazar in the Sudan box and a penalty is deservedly awarded! Manucho steps up.

  14. 46

    Angola's Nando Rafael replaces Flavio as we are back underway.

  15. Honours are even at the break. Join us again in 15 minutes for the second installment.

  16. 45

    Tahir threatens again as he thunders a first-time volley wide of the target. There will be one minute of optional time.

  17. 43

    Muhannad Tahir drills in a free-kick from the right but the Angolan defence does well to head clear.

  18. 37

    Angola's Djalma has a shot cleared off the line after breaking down the left and squeezing the ball past Akram El Hadi from a tight angle.

  19. 32

    Sudan goal! Mohamed Youssif Basheer rises superbly to head home the equaliser following a cross from the right!

  20. 30

    Angola's Flavio shapes to pull the trigger but is denied by some desperate Sudan defending.

  21. 24

    Angola's Gilberto is booked.

  22. 23

    Manucho, who is making an aerial nuisance of himself, fails to capitalise on a promising one-two on the edge of the area as the ball gets stuck under him allowing Sudan to clear.

  23. 19

    Fernandes keeps out a decent shot with a regulation stop. Good positioning there from the Angolan keeper.

  24. 15

    Angolan goalkeeper Carlos Fernandes comes off his line confidently to collect a ball over the top. There's plenty of space out there at the moment, with both sides shifting between defence and attack rather readily.

  25. 9

    Sudan's Mowaia Basheer is booked for a rash challenge.

  26. 7

    Sudan have been enjoying the better share of possession early on here but Angola won't mind thanks to Manucho, who of course netted the winner against Burkina Faso last time out.

  27. 4

    Angola goal! Manucho catches Najem Abdullah in possession before racing clear and finishing with a clinical strike in the corner!

  28. 1

    Sudan get us underway.

  29. If you fancy a wager, Sudan are 11/4 to beat Angola according to our friends with Sky Bet.

  30. Angola have been boosted by the availability of striker Nando Rafael. Rafael, a Germany u-21 international, missed out against Burkina Faso as he awaited FIFA approval for switching allegiances, which has now come through.

  31. Angola, who hosted the previous AFCON, beat Burkina Faso 2-1 in their first test, with Real Valladolid ace Manucho netting a 68th minute winner for the Black Antelopes.

  32. It's the second match for both sides. The Falcons of Jediane lost their opener to tournament contenders Ivory Coast, but can draw inspiration from the narrow 1-0 scoreline.

  33. Greetings and welcome to live coverage of Sudan's AFCON clash with Group B leaders Angola at Nuevo Estadio de Malabo.
