  1. 90+4

    The Foxes throw numbers forward for the final corner-kick of the match, but to no avail, as the ball bounces into touch and the referee puts the whistle to his lips to call to an end a niggling, drama-filled tussle in the 'Group of Death'.

  2. 90+2

    Kadir is yanked off with Mohamed Aoudia sent on in his stead, but once must think it's a little too late for the shell-shocked Algerians.

  3. 90+1

    Msakni goes into the book for whipping his shirt off in celebration, but teh Algerians don't seem to care as they pile on one another in joy.

  4. 90

    GOAL! From out of nowhere Msakni takes a snap-shot from out in front, his well-placed effort beating a hapless M'Bohli to nestle in the top corner.

  5. 89

    Algeria fail to make a real attacking opportunity from a corner-kick from the left count with men in the box but nobody getting on the end of the ball cleanly in the goalmouth.

  6. 88

    Khalil Chammam blazes his attempt on goal from the set-piece high and wide.

  7. 87

    Soudani gives away a free-kick in a good shooting area for Tunisia.

  8. 86

    Replacement Harbaoui comes off himself for Fakhreddine Ben Youssef, while Guedioura's had enough and comes off for Khaled Lemmouchia.

  9. 84

    A pass sneaked in behind the Tunisian defence in the box from the left almost finds Slamini, but the ball has too much pace on it and rolls out of touch.

  10. 82

    Guedioura's ball over the top for Slamini is too long, with the Algerian now having to receive treatment for what looks to be cramp.

  11. 80

    No luck for Algeria from Kadir's free-kick towards a packed box from the left after yet another foul was penalised and a set-piece awarded.

  12. 77

    The introduction of Soudani for the Foxes as seen the Algerians increase their attacking numbers with several of their defenders even pushing up now.

  13. 75

    With only their third shot on goal, Tunisia almost get the breakthrough with Harbaoui's effort at the near post off Dagarri's pass into the box, the final shot just wide.

  14. 74

    El Arbi Soudani comes on for Liassine Cadamuro.

  15. 73

    Cries from the Algerians as the referee waves play after they felt Abdennour had fouled Feghouli inside the area.

  16. 72

    Mesbah now goes into the referee's book for a challenge from behind on Khelifa.

  17. 70

    Guedioura smashes the ball from distance that swerves a little on its way goalwards, forcing a leaping attempt from Cherifa, but the ball invariably sails over the crossbar.

  18. 69

    Mesbah creates some space for himself out on the left to curl in a ball for a waiting Slimani, but the linesman's flag is up for the ball having gone out of play before coming back in.

  19. 67

    The Eagles passing the ball around aimlessly in the middle of the park, before moving the ball forward quickly for Harbaoui to take a shot at M'Bohli. But the Foxes gloveman gets down low to make the save.

  20. 65

    Feghouli combine well with Kadir and Mesbah down the left channel, but Los Che man's ball into area has too much weight on it.
