  1. 90+4

    And there it is. The referee brings an end to proceedings. Heartbreak for the Congolese, as Mali qualifies for the quarter-final tie against South Africa on Saturday. Ghana the other team to progress to the next round after their 3-0 win over Niger.

  2. 90+3

    Mali just looking to see out the match now. Congo throwing everything at goal as we approach the final whistle.

  5. 88

    Mbokani flicks the ball on into the box, but to his dismay it's straight into the keeper's grasp.

  6. 86

    Change for Mali. Sigamary Diakite comes on for Samba Diakite.

  7. 85

    Diba Ilunga gets a deserved rest. Mulota Kabangu is the man to replace him.

  8. 85

    Mohamed Traore gets a booking for a hard challenge on Cedric Makiadi.

  9. 83

    Diabate again. The big man goes round the keeper, but his shot from the tight angle strikes the post and rolls out for a goal-kick.

  10. 81

    Diabate almost gets the header there, but Zakuani is equal to the cross and puts it out for the corner.

    Dioko Kaluyituka get replaced by Deo Kanda.

  12. 78

    Cheick Diabate comes on for the goalscorer Mahamadou Samassa.

  13. 77

    Makiadi gets a yellow for a cynical tackle on Traore.

  14. 74

    Mbokani plays a brilliant ball to Diba Ilunga there, but before completing the one-two the big number goes down a bit too easily there.

  15. 73

    There's the substitution now. Traore on for Sissoko.

  16. 71

    Mali playing with 10 men for the moment, while Kalilou Traore is getting ready to replace Sissoko.

  17. 70

    Sissoko goes down after a shot on goal, strecher being brought on to take him off the field, doesn't look like he'll return to the match.

  18. 68

    Congo with a chance now. Mulumbu curls is shot towards the bottom corner, but Samassa just does enough to push it wide.

  19. 66

    Samassa almost gets his second of the night there. His shot forces a fumble out of Kidiaba, who watches the ball roll agonisingly wide of the post.

  20. 64

    Mali goalkeeper Mamadou Samassa get a caution for time wasting, the referee having none of that.
