  1. 90+7

    The referee blows the final whistle! Late drama clinches it for the Nigerians, and sends the defending Champions packing from the 2013 AFCON.

  2. 90+6

    Final whistle in the other match. Confirmed now that defending champions Zambia have been booted out of the competition.

  3. 90+6

    Nigeria content to sit back and see this one out. Letting Ethiopia have all of the ball at the end here.

  4. 90+4

    Credit to Ethiopia, still trying to get a goal. Kedebe blazes a shot over the bar from close range.

  5. 90+2

    Seven minutes added on for the goalkeeper fiasco.

  6. 90+1

    Mikel comes off for Joseph Yobo.

  7. 90

    Moses steps up again...and converts again, Hintsa guessed the right way but couldn't get there.

  8. 89

    The 23 now taped up to make a makeshift 21.

  9. 88

    Hintsa has to change the number in Tadelle's number 23 kit to number 21.

  10. 87

    Banda sent off for a second yellow. All three subs have been made, so Hintsa going in goal when he sorts out his kit.

  11. 85

    Another penalty given for a foul on Moses as the goalkeeper brings him down.

  12. 84

    Yellow for John Obi Mikel as he gives away a free-kick in a promising area.

  13. 83

    Free-kick gets floated in, Nigeria gets several half-chances to double their lead, but to no avail.

  14. 82

    Sisay Bancha picks up a yellow for complaining to the referee as the Walya Antelopes give away another free-kick just outside the area.

  15. 81

    Ethiopia go desperately close to an equaliser, Enyeama had different ideas though, coming up with a save from the very top drawer

  16. 80

    Moses steps up...and converts. Cool, calm and collected as he rolls the ball into the bottom corner. Surely knocking Zambia out of the competition.

  17. 79

    Alula Girma with the yellow for that challenge.

  18. 78

    Moses dribbles past Girma into the boz and is brought down.

  19. 76

    Mba a bit naive there, going for goal instead of looking for the better options to his left.

  20. 75

    The big man upfront Emenike is brought off and replaced by Brown Ideye.
