  1. 90

    It all comes to an end in Port Elizabeth. Niger 0-0 DR Congo. Niger will have the happier set of fans, as they earn their first ever point in the Africa Cup of Nations.

  2. 90+4

    Niger rush forward in numbers, Talatou gets his shot on target, but Kidiaba rises to the occasion to make a double save to keep the scores level. That should be the last action of the match.

  3. 90

    The fourth official has indicated five minutes of added time.

  4. 89

    Second substitution for Niger, Alhassane Dante comes on for Modibo Sidibe.

  5. 87

    Mbokani goes into the referees book for dissent.

  6. 84

    Promising counter-attack for the Nigeriens, but it just falls apart when a good final ball is needed.

  7. 82

    N'Gounou's first action on the pitch is to get a caution for tugging on Makiadi's jersey.

  8. 79

    William N'Gounou comes on for the injured Koudize.

  9. 76

    Koudize down on the ground. The medical team has come onto the pitch for treatment and to stretcher him off the field. Looks like he'll return soon enough.

  10. 71

    DRC make their third and final substitution. Zola Matumona comes on for Tresor Mputu.

  11. 66

    Possession: Niger 51% - 49% DR Congo. Both teams cancelling each other out at the moment, the defences pretty much equal to everything thrown at them.

  12. 60

    Maazou with a great header on goal, but again fails to really test Kidiaba.

  13. 56

    Change for the DRC, as Dioko Kaluyituka comes on for Kabangu.

  14. 55

    Corner comes to nothing as the DRC clear their lines. Niger get another shot on goal, but it's straight at the keeper.

  15. 54

    Maazou with a powerful shot from the edge of the area, but Kidiaba does well to punch the ball out for a corner.

  16. 49

    Mulota Kabangu has been lively down the flanks for the DRC, definitely one to watch for the remainder of their stay in the tournament.

  17. 46

    Lomana LuaLua makes way for Deo Kanda.

  18. 46

    Ossoufou Boubacar taken off for Boubacar Talatou.

  19. 45+2

    Referee brings an end to the half. Not too much for the fans in PE to get excited about. Both sides attacking well, but failing to find the final touch.

  20. 45

    Fourth official indicates two minutes added time.
