  1. Thanks for joining me, Sky Chomse, for what has been a great advert for the African game. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. 90+4

    It's all over!!! Nigeria have eliminated the favourites and advance to the semi-finals where Mali lie in wait.

  3. 90+4

    Free-kick for the Elephants in what is surely their last chance of the match, but the defence is resolute.

  4. 90+2

    Just two minutes of added time remain for Nigeria to hold on to their lead and for Ivory Coast to salvage their tournament hopes.

  5. 90+1

    Vincent Enyeama receives a yellow card for time wasting.

  6. 90

    Joseph Yobo comes on for Victor Moses to shore up the defence for Nigeria.N

  7. 86

    Fantastic challenge by Efe Ambrose to deny Yaya Toure a certain goal, with the midfielder clean through.

  8. 85

    The Nigerians will look to run the clock down and will certainly not be committing to many players forward as they try to defend their one goal advantage.

  9. 83

    Substitution for Ivory Coast as Romaric is replaced by striker Lacina Traore.

  10. 83

    Ivory Coast have it all to do with just seven minutes left of regular time.

  11. Brilliant goal from Mba who took the ball all of 60 yards before beating two defenders and firing over the helpless Barry, albeit via a wicked deflection off Souleymane Bamba.

  12. 78

    Goal!!!!! Ivory Coast 1-2 Nigeria!!! Sunday Mba gives the Super Eagles the lead!!!

  13. 75

    A quarter of an hour left in this match with the prospect of extra-time fast becoming a reality, as the teams remain level at 1-1.

  14. 71

    Moses is at the heart of everything good Nigeria are doing as his delicate flick releases Echiejile, only for the defender's effort to take a huge deflection and go out for a corner.

  15. 69

    Salomon Kalou comes off for Max Gradel.

  16. 67

    Great save from Vincent Enyeama to deny Yaya Toure a certain goal.

  17. 66

    Scramble in the Ivory Coast goalmouth eventually results in Barry gratefully getting his hands on the loose ball.

  18. 64

    Moses does well to create some space down the right, but then sends his cross out for a throw-in on the far side.

  19. 62

    Eboue has picked up a knock and looks to be in a fair amount of pain as the stretcher is brought onto the field, but the defender hobbles off unassisted to receive further treatment.

  20. 60

    The Elephants seem to be attacking at will, with Nigeria's defence struggling and having to make some last ditch challenges to keep themselves in the game
