  • The referee blows the final whistle! Late drama clinches it for the Nigerians, and sends the defending Champions packing from the 2013 AFCON.

    90+7
  • Final whistle in the other match. Confirmed now that defending champions Zambia have been booted out of the competition.

    90+6
  • Nigeria content to sit back and see this one out. Letting Ethiopia have all of the ball at the end here.

    90+6
  • Credit to Ethiopia, still trying to get a goal. Kedebe blazes a shot over the bar from close range.

    90+4
  • Seven minutes added on for the goalkeeper fiasco.

    90+2
  • Mikel comes off for Joseph Yobo.

    90+1
  • Moses steps up again...and converts again, Hintsa guessed the right way but couldn't get there.

    90
  • The 23 now taped up to make a makeshift 21.

    89
  • Hintsa has to change the number in Tadelle's number 23 kit to number 21.

    88
  • Banda sent off for a second yellow. All three subs have been made, so Hintsa going in goal when he sorts out his kit.

    87
  • Another penalty given for a foul on Moses as the goalkeeper brings him down.

    85
  • Yellow for John Obi Mikel as he gives away a free-kick in a promising area.

    84
  • Free-kick gets floated in, Nigeria gets several half-chances to double their lead, but to no avail.

    83
  • Sisay Bancha picks up a yellow for complaining to the referee as the Walya Antelopes give away another free-kick just outside the area.

    82
  • Ethiopia go desperately close to an equaliser, Enyeama had different ideas though, coming up with a save from the very top drawer

    81
  • Moses steps up...and converts. Cool, calm and collected as he rolls the ball into the bottom corner. Surely knocking Zambia out of the competition.

    80
  • Alula Girma with the yellow for that challenge.

    79
  • Moses dribbles past Girma into the boz and is brought down.

    78
  • Mba a bit naive there, going for goal instead of looking for the better options to his left.

    76
  • The big man upfront Emenike is brought off and replaced by Brown Ideye.
