Ivory Coast are through to the 2012 AFCON final! Only Zambia now stand between them and the trophy. It's been a straight forward victory tonight and could've easily been 2 or 3 nil. Well deserved victory for the Elephants.
Yellow card for Siaka Tiene for time wasting.
Ivory Coast sub: Yaya comes off and is replaced by Didier Ya Konan.
Samba Diakite booked after bringing down Gervinho from behind.
Mahamane Traore on for Sow as Mali make another substitution.
Cheick Tiote is cautioned for a tackle from behind.
Ivory Coast bring on Abdul Kader Keita for Kalou.
Mali make a change: Dembele comes on for Mustapha Yatabare
First change for Mali as Ousmane Coulibaly comes on for Drissa Diakite.
Ivory Coast have been in the ascendancy for most of the first half and will be relieved to have taken the lead just before the break.
GOAL Ivory Coast! Gervinho!
First yellow card for Ousmane Berthe after a poor challenge on Didier Drogba. Seydou Keita is booked as well in the aftermath.
If you fancy a wager, our friends at Sky Bet have priced Mali as 17/2 underdogs to upset the Ivorians, who are 2/5 to progress.
John Carolan: Mali lucky to get through group and qtr finals. This is where they meet their match. Ivory Coast beat Mali 3-0 in the last ANC and I fancy the same.
