  • Thanks for joining us and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  • That's it! What a result for the smallest nation ever to participate in the African Cup of Nations. True fairytale story here for Cape Verde.

  • Heldon has looked a threat ever since he was introduced at the start of the second half and he duly delivered with what could be the goal that sends the minnows through to the quarter-final. Epic stuff!

  • Goal!!!!!!! Angola 1-2 Cape Verde!!! Heldon with the second!!!

  • Yano on for Perolito for the Angolans.

  • Yano again with a shot at goal with the same result as the previous one.

  • Just over from Heldon with a free-kick on the edge of the area.

  • Yano almost makes an immediate impact but his shot misses by mere inches.

  • Cape Verde need another goal to finish as runners-up with just five minutes remaining.

  • It had to be Heldon as his corner is eventually turned in by Fernando Varela after a goal-mouth scramble.

  • Goal!!! Angola 1-1 Cape Verde! Fernando Varela with the equaliser!!

  • Geraldo on for Gilberto, who had a decent game down the left-flank for Angola.

  • J. Tavares wastes a glorious chance as his header flies over the crossbar. Should really have done better from that range.

  • Dangerous balls from Gilberto picks out Manucho but his effort is well wide. Not having his best game is the former Manchester United striker.

  • Angola are on course to finish runners-up if the score remains as is, as South Africa have found an equaliser in their clash with Morocco.

  • Fantastic chance for Cape Verde as substitute Djaniny latches onto the ball inside the penalty area, but his first touch lets him down and the defence recovers just in time.

  • Only 20 minutes left for Cape Verde to find the two goals they need to make it to the quarter-finals.

  • Heldon's dead-ball service is looking threatening as another one his his efforts is not dealt with by the Angolans leading to a corner-kick.

  • Substitution for Angola as Dede comes on for Mateus

  • Decent effort by Heldon from a free-kick on the edge of the box which the keeper spills, but thankfully for Angola it falls at the feet of a defender who clears the danger.
