  1. 90

    It's all over. The ref brings an end to an exciting encounter. Both sides gave it their all and the scoreline shows it. Yet another draw in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

  2. 89

    Uche comes on to replace Ahmed Musa.

  3. 87

    Eminike booked for an unknown reason just as his substitution is called off.

  4. 85

    Kennedy Mweene steps up to the plate in a spectacular way. Sends Enyeama the wrong way and puts it in the top corner. 1-1.

  5. 83

    Mayuka tugged down on the edge of the area by Onazi. Soft penalty to say the least.

  6. 82

    Zambia beat the offside trap to go two-on-one, but are to slow to work it into the box, with Collins Mbesuma putting a disappointing shot on goal.

  7. 79

    That's it for Victor Moses' AFCON debut. The Chelsea man is replaced by Brown Ideye.

  8. 76

    Nwankwo Obiorah comes on for Nosa igiebor.

  9. 72

    Emmanuel Mbola goes into the referees book for an unknown reason.

  10. 72

    Jonas Sakuwaha comes on to replace Isaac Chansa

  11. 71

    Another chance goes begging. Rainford Kalaba with a golden opportunity to get the equaliser, but he's unable to outsmart Enyeama, who easily clears the ball.

  12. 69

    Ahmed Musa gets a booking for fouling Sunzu while going for the header.

  13. 65

    Double change for Zambia as Chisamba Lungu comes off for Mukuka Mulenga, while Christopher Katongo is replaced by Collins Mbesuma.

  14. 64

    Yellow for Nathan Sinkala after clattering Onazi in the midfield.

  15. 61

    Zambia have it all to do in the group now if they want to progress to the knockout stages of the competition. However, I wouldn't write them off in this match just yet.

  16. 57

    Lungu gets dispossessed by Mikel who puts through Emineke on goal, and the big number 9 makes no mistake in putting the ball past Mweene.

  17. 54

    Nigeria have started the second half the brighter of the two, but both sides still look threatening on the break.

  18. 49

    Nigeria break forward with pace, Musa does well to beat the defence, but the square ball is just too far ahead of Emineke to touch it in.

  19. 46

    And we're back...

  20. 45+1

    The referee brings the half to an end, not too much to report on, both sides look lively going into the break.
