  • Last-gasp attacking effort from Mali is waved offsides as Ghana's bench erupts at the sound of the final whistle.

    90+5
  • Atsu showing some impressive skills in the middle of the park, turning sharply on the ball and then making a dash towards the 18-yard area, but his team-mates are not the same page and his pass forward goes astray.

    90+4
  • With their defence iron-clad at the back, the Black Stars are just playing for time and looking to retain possession.

    90+3
  • Atsu bundles the ball into touch inside the box after a great breakout from just over the halfway line from Ghana down the left flank.

    90+1
  • Diabate goes for goal inside the area off a rebounded corner-kick, but the West Ham ace can only shank his effort high and wide.

    90
  • Boateng looks to set-up Agyemang-Badu down the right with a short ball over the defence, but the ball has too much power on it and bounces out of play.

    88
  • The Eagles trying their outmost to pull level, but their latest attacking opportunity from a right-sided corner-kick is too long for any of their men in the box.

    87
  • Within seconds of coming on, Asante takes a pop at goal that skims just wide of Samassa's far pot.

    84
  • Adomah comes off for Solomon Asante to become Ghana's third and final change for the match.

    84
  • All getting pretty scrappy now, if it hasn't been already, Gyan going down on the right touchline after a seemingly innocuous challenge.

    82
  • Mali head into the final ten minutes of this encounter desperate to get on the scoresheet and throwing as many numbers forward as they can.

    80
  • Agyemang-Badu takes a crack at goal from the set-piece that Mamadou Samassa does well to parry into touch off a skidding effort.

    78
  • Asamoah is withdrawn in favour of Derek Boateng for the latter stages of this encounter as Ghana take an age to set up their free-kick from out in front.

    77
  • Mamadou Samassa, cousin of goalkeeper Mamadou Samassa, takes to the field in place of Traore.

    76
  • Replacement Atsu whips his corner-kick in from the right, but Vorsah can't keep his header on goal down.

    74
  • Traore, now, has his name pencilled into the referee's book; the late challenges are getting a bit ridiculous now.

    72
  • Christian Atsu comes on after goalscorer Mubarak is worringly stretchered off the after taking a heavy knock.

    71
  • Paintsil picks a caution for a late tackle out on the right.

    70
  • Samba Sow takes to the field in place of Mohamed Sissoko.

    69
  • Yellow card comes out again, this time for Adama Coulibaly's late challenge on Gyan.
