  1. 90+5

    Last-gasp attacking effort from Mali is waved offsides as Ghana's bench erupts at the sound of the final whistle.

  2. 90+4

    Atsu showing some impressive skills in the middle of the park, turning sharply on the ball and then making a dash towards the 18-yard area, but his team-mates are not the same page and his pass forward goes astray.

  3. 90+3

    With their defence iron-clad at the back, the Black Stars are just playing for time and looking to retain possession.

  4. 90+1

    Atsu bundles the ball into touch inside the box after a great breakout from just over the halfway line from Ghana down the left flank.

  5. 90

    Diabate goes for goal inside the area off a rebounded corner-kick, but the West Ham ace can only shank his effort high and wide.

  6. 88

    Boateng looks to set-up Agyemang-Badu down the right with a short ball over the defence, but the ball has too much power on it and bounces out of play.

  7. 87

    The Eagles trying their outmost to pull level, but their latest attacking opportunity from a right-sided corner-kick is too long for any of their men in the box.

  8. 84

    Within seconds of coming on, Asante takes a pop at goal that skims just wide of Samassa's far pot.

  9. 84

    Adomah comes off for Solomon Asante to become Ghana's third and final change for the match.

  10. 82

    All getting pretty scrappy now, if it hasn't been already, Gyan going down on the right touchline after a seemingly innocuous challenge.

  11. 80

    Mali head into the final ten minutes of this encounter desperate to get on the scoresheet and throwing as many numbers forward as they can.

  12. 78

    Agyemang-Badu takes a crack at goal from the set-piece that Mamadou Samassa does well to parry into touch off a skidding effort.

  13. 77

    Asamoah is withdrawn in favour of Derek Boateng for the latter stages of this encounter as Ghana take an age to set up their free-kick from out in front.

  14. 76

    Mamadou Samassa, cousin of goalkeeper Mamadou Samassa, takes to the field in place of Traore.

  15. 74

    Replacement Atsu whips his corner-kick in from the right, but Vorsah can't keep his header on goal down.

  16. 72

    Traore, now, has his name pencilled into the referee's book; the late challenges are getting a bit ridiculous now.

  17. 71

    Christian Atsu comes on after goalscorer Mubarak is worringly stretchered off the after taking a heavy knock.

  18. 70

    Paintsil picks a caution for a late tackle out on the right.

  19. 69

    Samba Sow takes to the field in place of Mohamed Sissoko.

  20. 68

    Yellow card comes out again, this time for Adama Coulibaly's late challenge on Gyan.
