    Time:90'
    • Sudan
    • Burkina Faso
    • 19:56 Sudan are through to the knock out stages, as Ivory Coast won 2-0. It means that there is a turnaround of three, so Sudan make it through to the last eight.
    • 90+6 Dagano scores to make it 2-1.
    • 90+6 Tahir off for Amer.
    • 90+5 Koffi's header just saved at the far post. Oh, that would have been cruel on Sudan if that had crept in
    • 94+4 Koffi's shot deflected for a corner. Could this be a goal back?
    • 93+3 Burkina Faso win a foul for Eltaib's trip on Tall.
    • 92+2 Ramadan ready for the ding-dong. On for Bashir.
    • 91+1 Eldin is stretchered off. Maybe he really is in pain.
    • 90' Five minutes of additional time
    • 89' Ala Eldin now down. He just got hit in the stomach, but he has gone down Platoon style. Steven Taylor of Newcastle, eat your heart out.
    • 88' Bashir turns on the edge of the area, but shoots well over.
    • 87' Tahir's shot from outside the area flicks off a defender, but they waste the corner.
    • 86' Akram is down again. This may well be time-wasting. They will regret that if Angola score!
    • 84' Ouedraogo blazes over after being set up by another reverse pass by Dagano. The substitute should have shot first time, but checked back.
    • 82' Akram is down after clearing the ball.
    • 81' Sudan definitely believe now. Eltaib with another great piece of control, but he is eventually crowded out by Kabore. If it stays like this, Sudan are through and will face Zambia in the last eight.
    • 79' Long kick out from Akram, Eltaib gets to the bounce of the ball before Diakite, and rolls it into the net. 2-0 Sudan.
    • 78' Kone off for Burkina Faso, Benjamim Balina.
    • 77' Traore gets the ball on the right for Burkina Faso, but his cross is easily cut out.
    • 75' Khalifa with an effort that deflects for a corner. Again the corner fails to beat the first man.
    • 74' Sudan know they have to score three, and are pretty much shooting on sight. They might be better to keep their discipline, and build proper chances.
    • 72' Mosaab tries himself from 30 yards out, but his shot trickles wide. Poor decision making from the Sudan defender.
    • 71' Diakite flicks over a snapshot by Tahir. This is better from Sudan.
    • 70' Tahir with a ridiculously optimistic free-kick from 40 yards, that is well wide.
    • 68' Mosaab fouls Kabore down the right. Gnanou's header from Kabore's free-kick is straight at Akram.
    • 67' Saif Eldin gets a yellow card. Dagano scores with a header, but is ruled correctly offside.
    • 66' Ivory Coast are 2-0 up now.
    • 65' Traore on for Burkina Faso for Yameogo. He is all of 16 years of age.
    • 63' Khalifa goes for goal down the right channel when perhaps he should have crossed the ball across goal.
    • 59' Dagano just wide with a header, as he gets above Saif Eldin twenty yards from goal. He did well to get power on the header, as Ouedraogo's cross from the left was slightly behind him.
    • 58' Nazar shows good feet in midfield, but his ball through the centre is fielded by Diakite.
    • 57' Koffi clears a cross into the Burkina Faso area.
    • 56' What a big chance missed by Ouedraogo, who stabs wide when one on one with the goalkeeper.
    • 55' Saif Eldin clears a cross from the left.
    • 54' Issiaka Ouedraogo comes on for Nakoulma.
    • 53' Mosaab just gives the ball away under no pressure. This is not a great game, to be honest. Both sides giving the ball away.
    • 52' Sudan disjointed in the first five minutes of the second half. Th fluency of the last 20 minutes of the first half has gone.
    • 51' Dagano is decreed to have dived as he goes for the ball with Muawia.
    • 50' Pitroipa fould by Eldin, Burkina Faso have a free-kick 35 yards out. The short free-kick comes to nothing.
    • 49' Saif Eldin heads clear, and a Burkina Faso break down the left coms to nothing.
    • 48' Two corners for Sudan, but Hitham twice hits the first man at the front post.
    • 47' Casual by Tahir on the edge of the box, and a Sudan chnce is wasted.
    • 46' We are off again for the second half. No further changes at half-time.
    • 45+2 Half-time. Sudan lead Burkina Faso 1-0. Sudan need two more goals, and Ivory Coast to continue to win, to go through from Group B.
    • 45 +1 Dagano heads wide under pressure, from Yameogo's cross from the right. The Burkina Faso skipper looks annoyed with himself at his failure to put his effort on target.
    • 45' Only two minutes of added-on time.
    • 44' Final minute of the half, but we are looking at three minutes of added on time.
    • 42' Pitroipa with a shockingly weak finish from the right channel, after a Burkina Faso break and a great reverse pass from Dagano. He was allowed the chance as Sudan defender Khalifa did not close down.
    • 41' Gnanou goes through Eltaib on the left, and that is a foul.
    • 39' Dagano offide for Burkina Faso. There is not the fluidity of movement as before. Pitroipa then overruns and is tackled by Eldin in the box.
    • 37' Sudan really fancy it now. A complete turnaround from the first twenty minutes, where Burkina Faso dominated.
    • 34' Ivory Coast have scored, so this is all in Sudan's hands now.
    • 33' Panandetiguiri gets a yellow card for a two footed tackle on Ala Eldin. That could and should have been a red.
    • 32' Sudan score through Eltaib, as he flicks the ball past Diakite. It came from a superb reverse pass from Tahir, and Hamadou Tall fails to clear as the ball drops to Eltaib.
    • 31' Kabore's free-kick again fails to beat the first defender.
    • 30' Mousaab fouls Narcisse Yameogo down the right, a bit of a hack that by the Sudan defender.
    • 28' Tahir fouled by Djakaridja Kone, who seems to use an elbow as he comes across the Sudan playmaker. Tahir's left-footed free-kick deflects just wide.
    • 27' Ala Eldin runs onto the ball after a good move inspired by Tahir, but the ball deflects off Kabore.
    • 26' Dagano fouls Muawia on the left, but the Sudan free-kick is awful and rolls into touch.
    • 25' Sudan have fouled Burkina Faso players ten times in the first 25 minutes!
    • 24' Pitroipa fouled on the left by Sudan captain Hitham. Again the free-kick comes to nothing.
    • 23' Nakoulma heads right at Akram, but is offside.
    • 22' Sudan's Mudather Eltaib turns but Hamadou Tall clears. Good link play by Sudan though in the area.
    • 21' Nakoulma concedes a free-kick to Sudan, but seems unlucky as he looked just to be trying to get to Dagano's flick-on.
    • 20' Tahir swaps flanks to try to get into the game for Sudan, but wastes his pass.
    • 19' A Burkina Faso corner goes through everyone, after Narcisse Yameogo's cross deflected off a Sudan defender. It was great approach work by Pitroipa.
    • 18' Akram fails to read a through ball well, but manages to clear from outside his area under pressure from Dagano.
    • 17' Khalifa reads a Dagano turn on the edge of the box well, and nicks the ball off the Burkina Faso captain's toes.
    • 16' Mohamed Koffi with a poor cross, after great possession by Burkina Faso down the right.
    • 15' Sudan's Khalifa air-kicks completely down the right channel. Sums up their evening so far.
    • 13' Dagano heads just wide at the far post, with Akram flapping a bit at the deep cross. Burkina Faso look by far the better side in the opening stages.
    • 12' The Burkina Faso skipper takes it himself, and floats his free-kick just over the crossbar.
    • 11' Free-kick on the edge of the box, after Muawia climbs in to Dagano.
    • 9' Foul to Burkina Faso in their own half, after a leap by Saif Eldin. It comes to nothing.
    • 7' Great header by Moumouni Dagano with a header from far out that just clips the post. Sudan goalkeeper Akram was scrambling and not looking that confident.
    • 5' Omer Musaab Maaz on for Eldin for Sudan.
    • 4' Sudan have gone for a 4-3-2 formation as they are down to ten men.
    • 3' It is actually Eldin who is going off on the stretcher. His back leg crumpled as he collided with his goalkeeper.
    • 2' The stretcher is on for Akram, who bumped into his own defender Nagm Eldin as he dived down for the ball.
    • 2' Sudan goalkeeper Akram dives at the feet Jonathan Pitroipa, who was bearing down on goal after a lovely backheel on the edge of the box by Charles Kabore.
    • 1' They are off, a very subdued atmosphere as you would expect.
    • 17:55 The teams are standing for the anthems, and you can hear every voice singing, and every player clapping afterwards. There is barely anyone in the ground.
    • 17:45 Sudan coach Mohamed 'Mazda' Abdallah opts to start again with Akram El Hadi in goal ahead of regular number one Moez el Mahjoub.
    • 17:43 There is no place in the Burkina Faso starting line-up for 16-year-old Chelsea player Bertrand Traore, who would have become the third youngest Nations Cup player in history.
    • 17:42 SUDAN: 21-Akram, 03-Muawia, 04-Nagm Eldin, 05-Ala Eldin, 08-Hitham (c), 09-Saif Eldin, 10-Mohamed Tahir, 15-Khalifa, 17-Mudather Eltaib, 19-Ahmed Bashir, 23-Nazar.///BURKINA FASO: Daouda Diakite, 22-Mady Panandetiguiri, 02-Ibrahim Gnanou, 04-Hamadou Tall, 03-Djakaridja Kone, 05-Mohamed Koffi, 11 Jonathan Pitroipa, 12-Prejuce Nakoulma, 15-Narcisse Yameogo, 18-Charles Kabore, 09-Moumouni Dagano.
    • 17:34 Sudan need to win their first African Cup of Nations match in 42 years by a three goal swing if they are to reach the last eight. Indeed, victory alone over Burkina Faso at the Estadio De Bata will not be enough for Sudan, who also need Ivory Coast to beat Angola in Group B’s other game. Ivory Coast have already qualified but need a point to win the group.
