  • The final whistle goes, Nigeria have done it, they have downed the Eagle of Mali to book their place in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final.

    90+4
  • Diarra dribbles past two to get another shot on goal, but blazes it out for a corner.

    90+2
  • Diabate does well to get the ball into the box, gives Cheick Diarra a perfect ball, but the number seven fluffs his shot.

    90+2
  • Keita puts the set-play over everybody.

    90+1
  • The fourth official signals three minutes at the end of the game. Mali with a free-kick...

    90
  • Diabate battles into the box and unleashes a shot on goal, Enyeama more than equal to it, however.

    89
  • Emenike takes a thunderous shot at goal, but seems to have pulled a muscle.

    87
  • Fousseni Diawarra booked for holding on to Onazi.

    85
  • Mali still pushing for another, but they can't unlock the Nigerian defence.

    84
  • Onazi with a shot on goal from distance, but it's well, well wide.

    83
  • Joseph Yobo is being brought on to replace the busy Efe Ambrose.

    81
  • Good run by Musa down the left-hand side, Emenike gets his boot to the ball in, but is not able to convert it this time.

    77
  • Goal Mali! Cheick Diarra pulls one back with a tap in after good work by Diabate in the box.

    75
  • Ejike Uzoenyi comes on for the second goalscorer Brown Ideye.

    71
  • Diabate registers a shot for the Eagles of Mali, but it's straight at Enyeama. They will have to do a lot better to get back into this game.

    68
  • Mali make their third substitution, Samba Sow coming on for Mahamane Traore.

    66
  • Musa puts the ball in the net again, but it won't count as he's ruled offside this time around.

    63
  • Ahmed Musa nets the fourth on the counter-attack, beating the offside trap and hitting it low and hard underneath the goalkeeper. Surely no way back for Mali now.

    59
  • Nigeria are so quick on the counter-attack, Mali just managing to deal with the barrage on that occasion.

    58
  • Patrice Carteron has seen enough, Momo Sissoko is taken off and is replaced by Cheick Diabate.
