  • It's heartbreak for the host nation as their Africa Cup of Nations adventure is over! Undiluted jubilation for Mali, who will face either the Ivory Coast or Nigeria in the last-four. Well, I hope you've enjoyed it. I'm Ryan Gordon wishing you a great rest of your weekend. Cheers all!

  • Mali are through to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals!

  • Lehlohonolo Majoro fires his penalty wide! 1-3.

  • Mahamane Traore slots home for Mali! 1-3.

  • May Mahlangu's penalty is saved! 1-2.

  • Adama Tamboura slots home for Mali! 1-2.

  • Dean Furman's penalty is saved! 1-1.

  • Cheick Diabate slots home for Mali! 1-1.

  • Siphiwe Tshabalala slots home for Bafana Bafana! 1-0.

  • South Africa will take the first spot-kick.

  • The match will go down to a penalty shoot-out!

  • A corner at the death for Bafana now, but they can't make the most of it as the ball bounces around in the area before a foul on the Mali defence brings play to a halt. Meanwhile, there will be two minutes added on here at the end before we head to the dreaded penalty shoot-out.

  • It looks like Bafana will have to play the final few moments with 10 men as Letsholonyane remains down on the sidelines.

  • Reneilwe Letsholonyane is down on the floor and doesn't look keen to get up. He's put in a full shift this evening, but he's just got a couple more minutes to soldier through.

  • Cheick Diabate manages to drive into the area, but he gets a bit too fancy for his own good and simply concedes possession to Sangweni.

  • A corner at the other end now, but it's an equally disappointing delivery from Shabba and the defenders easily clear.

  • A corner for Mali causes chaos at the near post, with the ball falling kindly for Mahamane Traore, but he can only fire well over from a tight angle.

  • Siphiwe Tshabalala lines up the free-kick, but from a good 30 yards he's going to need something special to beat the keeper, but he produces quite the opposite and balloons the ball over the bar.

  • Yellow card for Mahamane Traore, but he's lucky it's not red after a karate-style flying kick on Masilela.

  • Chance for Mali now as the ball is pulled back to the edge of the area for Mahamane Traore, but the ball is just behind him and he can't get a proper connection, allowing the defence to lump the ball clear.
