Result: Mali beat Mozambique to secure last-eight spot at African Nations Championship

Mali qualify for the last eight of the African Nations Championship as Group A winners with a last-gasp victory over winless Mozambique.

Mali have qualified for the quarter-final stage of the African Nations Championship by inflicting a third straight defeat on Mozambique.

The Eagles started the day in second place but go through as group winners because previous leaders and hosts South Africa were beaten by Nigeria, who join Mali in the last eight.

Mozambique were beaten convincingly by Nigeria and South Africa in their opening two matches in Group A, but had a half-time lead in Cape Town tonight thanks to Josemar's 38th-minute goal.

Mali were level three minutes after the interval thanks to Ibourahima Sidibe's second goal of the tournament.

It remained level and Mali were set to go through as runners-up until they won a late penalty that Idrissa Traore tucked home.

Next up for Henryk Kasperczak's side will be a quarter-final clash against the runner-up from Group B, again in Cape Town, on Saturday.
