Wilfried Zaha’s late goal put Ivory Coast into the quarter-finals of the African Cup of Nations after beating Mali 1-0 on Monday.

Zaha’s winner on 76 minutes saved Ivory Coast, who had been the second-best team for most of the last-16 game in Suez.
The Crystal Palace winger ran onto a long pass launched from the back and tucked his shot away, punishing Mali for failing to take their chances.
Mali, had twice as many shots on goal as the Ivorians and dominated the first half, but the 2015 champions progressed to set up a last eight tie with Algeria thanks to Zaha’s lone strike.
