  1. 90+4

    The final whistle goes, Nigeria have done it, they have downed the Eagle of Mali to book their place in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final.

  2. 90+2

    Diarra dribbles past two to get another shot on goal, but blazes it out for a corner.

  3. 90+2

    Diabate does well to get the ball into the box, gives Cheick Diarra a perfect ball, but the number seven fluffs his shot.

  4. 90+1

    Keita puts the set-play over everybody.

  5. 90

    The fourth official signals three minutes at the end of the game. Mali with a free-kick...

  6. 89

    Diabate battles into the box and unleashes a shot on goal, Enyeama more than equal to it, however.

  7. 87

    Emenike takes a thunderous shot at goal, but seems to have pulled a muscle.

  8. 85

    Fousseni Diawarra booked for holding on to Onazi.

  9. 84

    Mali still pushing for another, but they can't unlock the Nigerian defence.

  10. 83

    Onazi with a shot on goal from distance, but it's well, well wide.

  11. 81

    Joseph Yobo is being brought on to replace the busy Efe Ambrose.

  12. 77

    Good run by Musa down the left-hand side, Emenike gets his boot to the ball in, but is not able to convert it this time.

  13. 75

    Goal Mali! Cheick Diarra pulls one back with a tap in after good work by Diabate in the box.

  14. 71

    Ejike Uzoenyi comes on for the second goalscorer Brown Ideye.

  15. 68

    Diabate registers a shot for the Eagles of Mali, but it's straight at Enyeama. They will have to do a lot better to get back into this game.

  16. 66

    Mali make their third substitution, Samba Sow coming on for Mahamane Traore.

  17. 63

    Musa puts the ball in the net again, but it won't count as he's ruled offside this time around.

  18. 59

    Ahmed Musa nets the fourth on the counter-attack, beating the offside trap and hitting it low and hard underneath the goalkeeper. Surely no way back for Mali now.

  19. 58

    Nigeria are so quick on the counter-attack, Mali just managing to deal with the barrage on that occasion.

  20. 56

    Patrice Carteron has seen enough, Momo Sissoko is taken off and is replaced by Cheick Diabate.
