  • The referee blows the final whistle to bring an end to a very entertaining game of football. The final score is Ghana 2-2 DR Congo, thank you for joining our live commentary, be sure to catch us for the next AFCON 2013 game, Mali v Niger at 20:00. See you then!

  • An excellent early ball in from John Paintsil finds a wide open Gyan in the box who's header is saved well on the line, Ghana players protest the ball had crossed the line but the referee isn't convinced.

  • A good counter attack by DR Congo results in a good cross from the right by Kaluyituka but it is well caught by keeper Dauda.

  • Into five minutes of stoppage time and the match seems to be petering out somewhat.

  • Both teams look anxious to lose it late on, with much of the play aimed at keeping possession.

  • Mulumbu strikes a low shot from the edge of the area, but it is saved excellently by Dauda. DR Congo came agonisingly close to going ahead for the first time in the match.

  • After a thrilling first half an hour of the second half, the game is slightly more cagey as we approach the full time whistle

  • Larrys Mabiala 14 off, Cedric Mongungu 17 on

  • A dangerous early ball from the left by Atsu is tipped over the bar by Kidiaba.

  • Deo Kanda 11, on LuaLua 15 off

  • Gyan stings the hands of Kiaba with a powerful shot from the edge of the box, the ball is tipped behind for a corner.

  • Alain Kaluyituka 13, on Mulota Kabangu 4 off

  • GOAL! Makiadi equalises for DR Congo from the spot after he was brought down by Akaminko in the box.

  • Another gilt edged chance wasted by Gyan who shoots from the edge of the box when he had team-mates in better positions, although Ghana may have had a penalty shout as the ball appeared to strike Mabiala's arm in the area.

  • A hopeful early ball into the box from the left finds Mputu in the area who controls and shoots brilliantly, but it is well defended by Paintsil who blocks his effort on goal.

  • Undoubtedly the most open, and entertaining game of the 2013 AFCON tournament so far.

  • 10, Adomah off 11, Mohammed Rabiu on

  • Wakaso booked for a late tackle leading up to the goal.

  • GOAL! A swift response by DR Congo. Makiadi in space, playing a perfectly weighted ball through the middle to Mputu who stabs the ball past Dauda into the bottom right corner.

  • GOAL! The resulting corner taken from the right by Wakaso is headed in off the underside of the bar by Kwadwo Asamoah, an excellent header!
