  1. It's heartbreak for the host nation as their Africa Cup of Nations adventure is over! Undiluted jubilation for Mali, who will face either the Ivory Coast or Nigeria in the last-four. Well, I hope you've enjoyed it. I'm Ryan Gordon wishing you a great rest of your weekend. Cheers all!

  2. Mali are through to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals!

  3. Lehlohonolo Majoro fires his penalty wide! 1-3.

  4. Mahamane Traore slots home for Mali! 1-3.

  5. May Mahlangu's penalty is saved! 1-2.

  6. Adama Tamboura slots home for Mali! 1-2.

  7. Dean Furman's penalty is saved! 1-1.

  8. Cheick Diabate slots home for Mali! 1-1.

  9. Siphiwe Tshabalala slots home for Bafana Bafana! 1-0.

  10. South Africa will take the first spot-kick.

  11. 120+2

    The match will go down to a penalty shoot-out!

  12. 120

    A corner at the death for Bafana now, but they can't make the most of it as the ball bounces around in the area before a foul on the Mali defence brings play to a halt. Meanwhile, there will be two minutes added on here at the end before we head to the dreaded penalty shoot-out.

  13. 119

    It looks like Bafana will have to play the final few moments with 10 men as Letsholonyane remains down on the sidelines.

  14. 117

    Reneilwe Letsholonyane is down on the floor and doesn't look keen to get up. He's put in a full shift this evening, but he's just got a couple more minutes to soldier through.

  15. 115

    Cheick Diabate manages to drive into the area, but he gets a bit too fancy for his own good and simply concedes possession to Sangweni.

  16. 114

    A corner at the other end now, but it's an equally disappointing delivery from Shabba and the defenders easily clear.

  17. 113

    A corner for Mali causes chaos at the near post, with the ball falling kindly for Mahamane Traore, but he can only fire well over from a tight angle.

  18. 112

    Siphiwe Tshabalala lines up the free-kick, but from a good 30 yards he's going to need something special to beat the keeper, but he produces quite the opposite and balloons the ball over the bar.

  19. 111

    Yellow card for Mahamane Traore, but he's lucky it's not red after a karate-style flying kick on Masilela.

  20. 110

    Chance for Mali now as the ball is pulled back to the edge of the area for Mahamane Traore, but the ball is just behind him and he can't get a proper connection, allowing the defence to lump the ball clear.
