The Gambia and Mali both moved to the brink of the last 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations as they played out a 1-1 draw in Limbe, Cameroon.

 

Both goals in the Group F encounter came from late penalties awarded via video assistant referee reviews.

 

Ibrahima Kone had put Mali ahead with 11 minutes left after Ebou Adams pushed over Yves Bissouma in the box.

 

But Musa Barrow grabbed a point for the debutants in the final minute after Bissouma was penalised for handball.

 

The Gambia and Mali are both on four points after two games, which could prove enough to qualify for the knock-out stages as one of four best third-placed teams.

 

The Gambia, the lowest-ranked team in the competition, beat Mauritania 1-0 in their first-ever Nations Cup game and a place in the last 16 would be a fine achievement for Tom Saintfiet’s Scorpions.
