Ivory coast reached the quarter finals of the African Cup of Nations on Monday with a 1-0 win over Mali. Wilfred Zaha’s finish in the 76th minute did the trick - with just 14 minutes of regular time remaining.
The crystal palace winger broke the deadlock and put the ball into the net in the dying minutes of the second half after enduring pressure from “The Eagles”.
Meanwhile, Tunisia took on Ghana in the last round of 16.
The 2004 Champions opened the score sheet in the first half of the game with a goal from Taha Yassine Khenissi.
In the 73rd minute, Ghana got lucky after the Tunisian Rami Bedoui headed an own goal in the stoppage time of the game, resulting in one goal apiece. This led to extra time and penalties.
In the penalty shootout Ghana’s Caleb Ekuban missed one penalty out of 5 and Tunisia scored all their 5 penalties, making the latter win the match 5-4 on penalties.
Ivory coast will meet Algeria in the last eight, while Tunisia face Madagascar in the quarter finals.
