    • 82' Bangoura, who has gone close on so many occassions, produces a neat turn in the box and shoots but sees his effort deflected onto the crossbar.

    • 78' GUINEA SUB: Two-goal hero Diallo has taken a knock and is quickly replaced by Soumah.
    • 77' Guinea are completely in control here but it's not been a great second half performance from them. Too many stray shots, loose crosses and mistimed passes.
    • 76' Botswana win two corners in quick succession - their first of the game - but they come to nothing.
    • 75' This second half has been a real non-event. Yes, Guinea have had chances to increase their lead but the game's had no bite to it.

    • 62' How long until Guinea boss Michel Dussuyer rings the changes to protect tired legs ahead of their final group game?

    • 45+3' GOAL! Traore thumps a left-footed free-kick round the wall, past the outstretched Marumo and into the back off the net off the post!
    • 45+2' RED CARD! Motsepe lunges in with a horrendous challenge on Feindouno - high and studs showing - and the Botswana's substitute's sent off!
    • 45+1' There will be two minutes added time.
    • 45' Motlhabankwe, who's already been booked, lunges in with a mis-timed challenge - he won't last the 90 minutes if he continues like that!

    • 38' Guinea break through Bangoura, who doesn't have any support so goes alone, but his shoot from the edge of the box is straight at Marumo.

    • 36' Guinea look to press home their numerical advantage but the move soon breaks down.
    • 35' Nato has taken a knock and hobbles off to receive treatment. Botswana are down to ten men for the moment.
    • 33' The ref briefly stops play so the Guinea physio can come on to patch up Bah.
    • 32' Yet ANOTHER mix-up in the Guinea defence! This time the keeper, Yattara, gets to the ball but clatters his centre-back in the process!
    • 31' Jerome has a crack from 25 yards but it's blocked on the edge of the box.
    • 29' Botswana left-back Motlhabankwe dives in with a rash challenge and goes into the referee's notebook. He's been caught out a couple of times already and will be walking on a tightrope now.

    • 27' Botswana counter-attack and Mongala shoots but sees his effort blocked.

    • 24' GOAL! Selowane steps up again and dispatches a cool penalty into the top-right corner. Excellent spot-kick - and that's Botswana's first ever African Cup of Nations goal.

    • 22' PENALTY! Balde plays an awful back pass and Botswana striker Jerome nips in and is brought down by Guinea keeper Yattara.
    • 21' Botswana are defending extremely deep and that allows Traore to advance but his strike is a poor one and the ball drifts harmlessly over.
    • 20' Bangoura looks to have got behind the Botswana defence but the linesman's flag is soon up. Offside.
    • 19' Botswana have failed to assert themselves on the game and are struggling to earn any time on the ball.

    • 10' Guinea goalkeeper Yattara hesitates when coming to gather a long ball and Moloi nearly nips in but Yattara just about gets to the ball first to smother.
    • 8' Guinea have started the better of the two sides but without putting the Botswana defence under too much pressure.
    • 7' Diallo looks to latch onto a hopeful ball down the left wing but can't stop it going out for a Botswana throw.
